I am interested in and attend various activities, workshops, and discussions that are sponsored by TW and its members.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I believe that good quality of life requires that people be interested and engaged in their communities. Respectful dialogue and shared decision-making are antidotes to abuse of power and to a short-sighted, narrow interested, unsustainable human presence.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I am interested in the full range TW investigations. I have some training as an adult educator and would like to collaborate on developing strategies to promote skills and opportunities to emerge citizen engagement in a more participatory democracy.
I have a house that I am remodeling and hope to make a model of energy efficient retrofit.
I would like to learn more about local investment.
