Sustainable NE Seattle

Connecting for a sustainable community

As an official Transition Initiative, Sustainable NE Seattle is co-sponsoring a two-day "Training for Transition" course, May 2 and 3, in Seattle.

The Transition movement is a set of inspiring ideas for creating an attractive and enticing vision of how our communities could be. It starts with the recognition that the world is facing both climate change and oil depletion. These twin crises cannot be solved separately, and they cannot be solved with technological miracles, but only by lessening our dependence on fossil fuels. This doesn't mean a bleaker future. The heart of Transition is the belief that if we engage with enough imagination and ingenuity to unlock the collective genius of the community, we can choose a future that is even better than the present.

The two-day course will follow the Transition model in paying attention to both the outer work and the inner work necessary for a successful transition process. The course is participatory, action-learning-based and fun, with participants invited to share their own experience and learn from the many different transition projects represented in the group.

Did anyone else read the NY Times article this past Sunday about Transition? The entire magazine was devoted to the subject of "The Green Mind" and much of is is very thought-provoking. Not sure if this link will work but I'll try, it's to the Transition article: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/19/magazine/19town-t.html?_r=1&ref=magazine
