For those of you following the Transition Towns movement, I encourage you to take a look at this 10 min video of their recent conference to get a flavor of what is happening and - hopefully - what will take hold in the states as well.

Isn't Bioneers conference much like this one?

Hi Doanne - Bioneers has some great stuff, but the Transition movement is very specifically focused on creating a positive transition to a post-carbon reality. Energy Descent. Relocalization. Those elements will certainly come up in Bioneers events, but a Transition Town effort happens locally, town by town and is created by the people that live in each town.

Check out the site for Tranistion Town Totnes (in the UK) as an example:

This is a short clip from the Canandian Broadcasting Corp, as well. In it, Rob gives one of the best concise descriptions of why local currency is important.
