Transition is all about local resilience. That’s why each Transition initiative is different, adapting to the local environment, needs, and energy level. But cross pollination is also important. With that end in mind, more than a dozen Transitioners from around the Bay Area and beyond gathered at Victoria Armigo’s house in Sunnyvale on March 17 for some great food, drink, and conversation.
Folks came from San Francisco, Mill Valley, Albany, San Jose, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, and Sebastopol to share stories about how everyone became involved in Transition, the accomplishments and challenges in each local area, and ideas for the future. Carolyne Stayton from Transition US shared her ideas for connecting people around the country and providing support for people for their own communities.
