Could you send this message around to the Atlanta Beyond Oil group? I received it from Liz Bryant (early Atlanta Beyond Oil member, who has been living in Oregon for several years) who received it second-hand herself.Gail
----- Original Message ----- From: Stephen Wing To: Lake Claire Land Trust Sent: Sunday, April 01,[masked]:23 PM Subject: Transitioning beyond petroleum -- a potluck with speaker, Mon. April 9 Friends & neighbors --
In "Transition Towns" around the world, ordinary people are doing what few elected leaders are willing or able to do: looking beyond the inevitable decline of our petroleum-based economy and imagining what comes next. Unless we actively prepare, it is likely to be chaotic and unpleasant, compounded by climate change and economic uncertainty. The Transition movement is networking internationally to set up local systems of cooperation and self-reliance wherever people are waking up to the imminence of "Peak Oil."
In Atlanta, a small group of ordinary people are attempting to get the ball rolling. Join us for a potluck with speaker Roy Taylor, who has spearheaded the effort in Cherokee County, followed by a discussion of future steps to take in our own neighborhoods. Please forward this invitation to anyone you know who is awake and thinking ahead.
Transition Town Atlanta?
with speaker Roy Taylor
