We meet WEEKLY due to the enormity of the challenges and the urgency needed to address the issues that face us - Tuesdays 7 pm at Emergence Community Arts Collective, 733 Euclid Street NW, WDC 20001. We've been following a schedule something like this:
1st week - Food & Farming
2nd week - Transition
3rd week - Film
4th week - Planning & Networking
5th week when there's one - Special guest
but any can be trumped by urgent matters arising. For example, we are already thinking of devoting the first or second meeting in 2009 to building the infrastructure for an alternative local economy.
Our final meeting for this year will be on Tuesday Dec 23, 6 pm at The Potter's House to celebrate our time together and resolve to accomplish even more in the New Year.
I'd love to come but I live just over an hour away from Washington, DC. Is there any way to get a summar of the information provided, and perhaps I can start a chapter here in Maryland? I just hate the idea of driving 50+ miles each way by myself! Chip Barnes 443-318-4825 or 410-790-1962
We usually post notes from each meeting so you can get updated. We'd love to have you at Tuesday's meeting but wouldn't encourage you to drive alone all the way from Baltimore. Bus or train, yes. Definitely we'll help you start a group. It's all about localization after all. We're following the Transition model which is eminently replicable. We'll be hosting Transition Town training early next year. Right now we're looking at setting up Transition Brookland and Transition Bethesda.
