I asked Don Hall to a skype call this morning to bounce ideas and collaborate further here are some notes I took down to share with the community.
What role is US Transition playing?
- Education, Training, Webinars, and support for initiating Transitions
Bioregional Hub Concerns
-Transition U.S. has concerns over Regional hubs forming before successful Transition Initiatives have been established. If your initiating a Transition Hub and 95% of your time is spent traveling in your region then very little real work is being done in Towns/cities.
*Applications to make successful Transitions occur
Don shared with me some of his successes. He brought up the showing of Chris Martenson's Crash Course along with Dr.Albert Bartlett Arithmetic Problem. We both came to a collaborative agreement that its good to show the problem, but also focus on movies that may have solutions in them. There are very few and far between but one I found recently was 2012: A time for Change.
Don suggested I become a vendor for Chelsea Green to get bulk copies of Transition Handbook/Gaia's Garden. He's gone ahead and established 2-3 regular events throughout the week to allow people to plug and play into his Transition initiative.
-Create Pamphelts for Code Green Community to hand out.
-Workshop Information - informational = free - Half Day= $25 -Full Day = $45
