I have recently attended a transition town initiative training :thumbright: and am now starting to get a group together to give flight to the transition in my town. I am keen to know if any of the fellow AP enthusiasts here are involved in transition town activities.

For those of you have not yet heard of this sustainable cultural experiment on global scale :headbang: , here is a link to the town where it all started;

http://www.transitiontowntotnes.org/

Wiki: Transition Towns is a grassroots network of communities that are working to build resilience in response to peak oil, climate destruction, and economic instability.

Looking forward to replies.

:notworthy:

I collect community/alternative/complementary currencies and I have been collecting the notes from Totnes, Lewes and Brixton which are all transition towns.

Unfortunately our own local attempt did not work. Getting people to trade national legal tender for 'funny money' was not acceptable to Australians. It is popular in Europe and especially in America.

The shop local idea doesn't really work too well here as we seem to import everything, even things we grow here are cheaper as imports due to high costs of labour and real estate :(
