Unleashing Transition Coburg

Greetings all – especially those of you who might live in Coburg (Melbourne), or thereabouts.
I’m guessing most of you have all heard of Transition Initiatives, but for those who haven’t, the basic idea is this: it doesn’t look as if our governments are going to do anything significant with respect to peak oil or climate change, or the other problems we are facing, so we are going to have to build resilient, vibrant, post-carbon communities ourselves. Personal action alone can seem a little overwhelming. Our best bet is community action. This is where Transition Initiatives step in. It’s a fast growing movement of grassroots action, and its a model that is showing great promise. If you want to know more, do a quick Google search. There’s heaps of good information out there.
Anyway, a small group of us have recently launched Transition Coburg and I was wondering if there are any Coburgians out there who’d like to get involved in one way or another? We’re focusing on relocalising food, as well as promoting education, community building and skill sharing, and renewable energy and energy efficiency, etc. We’re ambitious, and it’s going to be a challenge, but we’re determined to have a good time as we make things happen.
If anyone is interested in signing up (you don’t need to be Coburgian), please subscribe to http://www.TransitionCoburg.org and let’s see what happens. From little things big things grow.
And good luck to you Samuel. :tup:
If you care to search you will find info and links on als re transition towns. At least one alser has oodles of experience in that field I believe. :shrug:
Thanks Bobbee, I had seen a couple of posts on ALS re transition, but thanks for the prompt. I’ll take another look. We could certainly do with guidance from well established transititoners.
I just came upon this post.
I’ve moved to Northcote now, so would be interested in attending – if and when the opportunity arises.
