How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I've am preparing in the ways I can and spreading awareness to others.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Wow, that could be a long answer. The short answer is that I have always been more aware and interested in pursueing sustainable living in part because I believe simple living, though good for the planet is good for people in many ways. I am interested more now than ever becuse I believe global oil production peaked in 2005-06 and oil will be come more expensive and scarce in the years to come. wish to become as oil independant as possiblein the months and years to come to be as insulated from the effects of peak oil as possible.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I think the best way is to lead by example. I can teach others that sustainability does not mean a lower quality of life. Quite the opposite. People do not realize that our current way of life is not only hurting the planet, but ourselves as well, as we've moved away from community living and relationships.

I've been checking this site out for the past few months. There's been a clear recent shift evolving between identifying who we are and putting things in motion. This is a great site to learn what's going on and to connect with others to co-create local opportunities. Another place is Green Drinks through Western Mass Green Consortium, which I understand takes place in Shelburne Falls (unsure of afternoon) and tonight (2nd Wed @ Northampton Brewery. Folks get together and share. I'm feeling exponential energy and haven't even gotten that involved yet. The hundreth monkey has arrived!
