Oct 4/5 Transition Events

Rachel L.
Gray, ME
Hello Transitioners!
October 4th and 5th are shaping up to be a wild successes and I wanted to send you a couple of inside scoop as well as some ways to help out.
The Scoop

  • We have partnered with the Resilience Hub, Portland Food Cooperative, Post Carbon Institute, Transition US to spread the world and co-sponsor the Local Action can Change the World event, and we recruited Rob Hopkins and Jon Rooks to speak at UNE Friday.

  • Some of the other organizations we reached out to included Portland Buy Local, Hour Exchange Portland (HEP), Friends of Presumpscot River and the Southern Maine Sustainability Council. Friends of Presumpscot River and the Southern Maine Sustainability Council will be there with information about  their organizations.

  • A group of HEP members formed a Transition Portland account to provide music and some horderves for the event with time dollars. You can donate hours to Transition Portland at ­http://www.hourexchan...­. We also formed a group there to help other Transition Minded folks there.

Helping out

  • One of the themes for both events is being a network, so we will be helping to make the network visible at each event. Please join the fun and help by "building the map" and tweeting about  the event with the hashtag #localaction

  • You can follow Transition Portland on Twitter @TransitionPWM

  • We need greeters to welcome people at the Rob Hopkins event on Friday night and at the Gathering on Saturday. There will be a huddle for each of these groups an hour ahead of the events (Friday at 5 and Sat at 8:30 am.) If you would like to help out with either, please let us know!
  • We need some beverages for the gathering, cider, tea, chaga kombucha...anything will help.

That is all for know! So glad we have this opportunity!!
