The Future of Business Conference at Whatcom Community College, Syre Student Center

April 30, 2010 from 8am to 6:30pm
2010 and the New EconomyIn a world that's been "reset" by a sharp worldwide recession, accelerating climate change and a collapse of trust in business--the implication and opportunities for local business are enormous. Billions of dollars are being invested to stimulate the economy and most of that money is going toward energy efficiency. The local food sector is soaring. There are new opportunities in the building industry through building performance and energy efficiency. Localization is a…See More

"Just what I said, Kelly and I were there, were fed some delicious rice and beans, and then were sitting on the couch and chatting, waiting for the event to get started. We walked around and read some of the information regarding the different…"

The Age of Stupid at WWU, AW204

April 7, 2010 from 7pm to 8:30pm
Coming up next, THE AGE OF STUPID, the new four-year epic from McLibel director Franny Armstrong. Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite stars and it entirely convincing as a weary archivist, living alone and still in disbelief in the devastated world of 2055, looking at old news footage from 2008 and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?The folks who saw this recently at the Firehouse reported that this is an extremely powerful film- stunning. A discussion will follow…See More

The Age of Stupid...an uncomfortable truth. at Fairhaven Firehouse

March 27, 2010 from 7pm to 9pm
"We could have saved ourselves, but we didn't. It's amazing. What state of mind were we in, to face extinction and simply shrug it off?"A film about the future we could face if we don't make changes- and quickly. This one is not for the fainthearted, because the combination of documentary and a fictionalized "future" as told by the narrator carries double the impact of a purely factual film. That said, the message is conveyed creatively and clearly. Pete Postelwaite is entirely believable as…See More

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
Attended a showing of "Collapse" @ the Pickford. Rocked "The Great Unleashing" weekend, learned a lot and made some valuable connections. Taking a couple of classes related to sustainibility at Fairhaven College this quarter: Envisioning the Future & Applied Human Ecology, aka Gardening! Hoping to acquire some skills for building a better world!
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have been interested in the oncoming catastrophe for a long time, and looking into alternative modes of living. Conventional politics are for the most part meaningless; having attended several Whatcom Young Democrats meetings, I've seen first-hand how ill-prepared people are for the radical shift that peak oil (which transcends issues like local elections) implies for everyone.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I'm an English literature major @ Western, graduating next quarter. I will be applying to the Master's program here, and would like to be able to pursue a career in education. Education is crucial to the success of a movement like this, which depends on the dissemination of not just criitcal information but also an overall context in which to understand what the end of the world means.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Garden St, right downtown.

To make a contribution in my own limited way to a free-thinking and far-seeing community of fellows.
