We are definitely working find ways to jump start the movement but our first priority has been to get this network more functional and getting to know everyone in the community. There are many brilliant individuals who are part of this network like yourself who we have been making effort to connect with build relations so that we can all get on the same page and create campaigns that will forward the transition efforts so it is great to know want to be part of that effort.
We started a 4 Years Go action group which will be the start-up group to not only to submit Transition California stories to that initiatives main blog but also the group that will be developing our first collective campaign initiative.
We are "leaders who follow" so we are creating space to facilitate inclusive group action. We look forward to working with you and co-creating the agenda for Transition California.
Sorry for the delay. I am still in North County. Have been quite busy lately with work, and organizing a new company that will be launching directly. Looking forward to getting involved again. Any new exciting news you would like to share.
