Event Description

Our first big Transition Whatcom Awareness Raising Event!

Don’t miss this timely and informative October 1 event exploring economic instability, current climate change/global warming developments, and the end of cheap oil, including how these critical issues are related and how solutions must be developed in the context of all three.

Transition Whatcom is committed to the goal of significantly reducing community dependence upon fossil fuels. As TW members, please consider inviting your friends and neighbors to attend this timely and informative event. We will present three local speakers who are experts in the fields of economics, climate change science, and energy. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session and discussion on local action.

:"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain...."

Tom & Rick & all – I'll come by early to volunteer
and help with set-up/greeting or where needed,
and Don's coming to volunteer also..
Call us if you have any specific requests.

Twig members – it would be helpful to have future transition-event dates posted online somewhere, even if they are tentative..
.ie. - are there events/open space/action groups planned for other Thursdays in Oct/Nov/Dec? Let us know if you have a working pattern of Thursdays being for Transition-W featured events.
