How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I'm in the Transition Maynard core organizing group.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
When I read the Transition Handbook, I knew Transition work matched my deepest values and concerns. I immediately wanted to start a movement in my town of Maynard, but the book cautioned not to begin until there was a core group of at least 6 people. I suggested the book to our Green Book Club, and after we read it, we found that there were in our small group those with expertise in the Head (facts) the Heart (feelings, giving up addictions) and the hands (community organizing, making things happen). We realized this movement was a natural fit for us!
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
Our group has set up a year-long program with 6 two-month topics: trash, water, food, transportation, energy and the Transition Movement. Every other month we host a film or a book discussion around a topic. We have been explaining the TM to attendees and spreading the word.
