Transition Berkeley invites you to come help us celebrate our 3rd anniversary!
Please join us for a potluck supper at 6:30 followed by,
In Transition 2.0
an inspirational film about the Transition Movement that gathers stories from ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
We’ll learn what Transition Towns around the world are doing to change their local economies. You’ll hear about communities printing their own money, growing food everywhere, localizing their economies and setting up community power stations. It’s an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism. In a world awash with gloom, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of growing vegetables in unexpected places.
Special guests Rebecca Newburn of the Richmond Rivets and Kendra Shanley of Transition SF will talk briefly about changes they are creating in their communities and a new local currency called Bay Bucks. (EBCOHO is a Bay Bucks member). Afterward there will be opportunities to talk about the film and get involved in action projects in the community.
This event is co-sponsored by Transition Berkeley, and the BFUU’s Social Justice Committee.
Note: this is not a cohousing-specific event, but we have participated in showings with Transition Berkeley and the model of neighborhood organizing includes cohousing as a tool. Come and get inspired and connected, ready to create community wherever you call home.
