As mentioned, we will be looking at Chapters 2 and 3 in The Transition Companion.
Chapter Two: Why Transition Initiatives Do What They Do
Chapter Three: Where We Might Be Headed: The Power of Future Scenarios
The matching chapters in The Transition Handbook, if anyone wants to look at those are Chapter 1 (Peak Oil and Climate Change: The Two Great Oversights of Our Times), and Chapter 2 (The View From the Mountain Top). There's a fair amount more detail about P.O. and CC in the Handbook, as well as more material on Future Scenarios. Chapter 3 is very much worth reading from the Handbook if you have access to it.
The Future Scenarios section is largely inspired by David Holmgren's Future Scenarios, which can be found in its entirety online at futurescenarios.org. I think this is essential stuff, please do check it out.
Another big inspiration is the book Powerdown by Richard Heinberg.
Thanks for the two links as I don't have the handbook.
My RSVP is a possibly yes. I don't know yet if I'll be able to be in town that night.
