Keegan Quinn commented on Set Your Intention- Step 1 2018-01-09 12:46:41 -0600 on January 09, 2018 at 12:46 PM (CST)All of the above. I have multiple goals to accomplish, and most of them play off of each other. There is this Sportsmobile we have our eyes on that we want because it will make the #vanlife for us more comfortable, and in doing so, that will allow us a proper vehicle to serve as a base of operations for our mobile volunteer work. And by doing the volunteer work, we will be able to connect with more people to educate about how The Transition can benefit them. And it goes on from there.

After reading this, please endorse below as The Transition sees YOU as one of our many beneficiaries.
Intent: We unite and empower people to take positive action towards enhancing and protecting all life and our environment for future generations.
Purpose: Our purpose is to construct real solutions by providing the support, space, and resources for the common heritage of the Earth's resources and to do so via our collective knowledge. We are committed to building community projects that promote organic farming, alternative transportation, clean drinking water, renewable energy, green building, and using music and the arts to convey the message.
With a special focus on street-involved youth and families living in poverty, we encourage community involvement through collaborative volunteerism, education, programs and media events. We help others enhance their food and housing security, learn life skills, and build confidence to make the transition to a more sustainable lifestyle - leading to a Global Egalitarian System for the good of all.
We strive to create an inclusive community where all members have the skills, confidence, and support to live a healthy life. It is our pledge to each other and to the world we are creating, to help each other live life to the fullest.
Our method of collaboration within our Transition Inter-Community Network is based on scientific benchmarks to meet everyone's’ needs - instead of what’s most profitable - therefore exchange between members requires no monetary attachment.
