In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
This movement brings messages of hope and empowerment. I think the way it's structured, it facilitates progress toward a more sustainable community. I believe that this is a good way for communities to identify what can be done on a local level - very empowering. I love that each community decides its own strategy for transition. I think these strategies give people hope that things can get better.

Have not heard much from you but thought of you when we learned that we would be able to give free passes to 10 Bay Area folks to attend the Bay Localize Convening - add your name to the blog post if you are interested in going and thank you for catalyzing our new avatar contest last summer - it was fun for everyone :-)
