Transitioning communities
On Monday night I enjoyed listening to the ways in which we can transform urban communities to be peak-oil resilient and part of a safe climate future. Love the way the transforming communities movement (transition towns etc) has adopted the phrase "Parties not protests". The central idea is to get people together to enjoy each other's company while transforming community behaviour: through skill sharing (getting together and learning how to cook again!); through swap meets; through fruit tree planting; through chook education sessions.
So many possibilities locally. And put 10/10/10 in your diary as a day of action. Look out for lcoal events to take us to a new and more sustainable way of living in a safe climate.
