Transitioners from as far away as Humboldt and Monterey gathered at the Berkeley library on Saturday January 12 for the first quarterly regional Northern California Transition convergence. Local attendees included Dave Lantz, Victoria Armigo, William Mutch, Eitan Fenson, and Barbara Weinstein. After an excellent potluck lunch, folks shared what’s happening in their local Transition initiatives and how others might help. The breakout sessions featured brainstorming about topics ranging from affordable housing to energy, group dynamics, climate change, local currencies, and more.
