Ever considered starting up an Transition Town in Portland? A few of us have and we are co-hosting a movie night featuring the films "In Transition" 1.0 and 2.0 to see who might want to help breath new life into the Transition Movement in Portland.
If this is a success, we will could organize a series for the summer months, or coalesce around organizing an unleashing or a Resilience Circle.
Come on down lets gather and look at Transition together and talk about What does a sustainable future look like in our town? What might this movement also be?
There will be some light refreshments available but bringing some is encouraged. Also, the book Transition Companion will be also available from the Resilience Hub for a donation.
About the Film:
‘In Transition’ is the first detailed film about the Transition movement filmed by those that know it best, those who are making it happen on the ground. The Transition movement is about communities around the world responding to peak oil and climate change with creativity, imagination and humor, and setting about rebuilding their local economies and communities. It is positive, solutions focused, viral and fun.
In the film you'll see stories of communities creating their own local currencies, setting up their own pubs, planting trees, growing food, celebrating localness, caring, sharing. You’ll see neighbors sharing their land with neighbors that have none, local authorities getting behind their local Transition initiatives, schoolchildren making news in 2030, and you'll get a sense of the scale of this emerging movement. It is a story of hope, and it is a call to action, and we think you will like it very much. It is also quite funny in places.
Suggested donation for this event is 5$.
