I am also interested in volunteering and travelling to other communities and offering insights, skill-shares, and various healing therapies.

" [Love] It is the experience of solidarity with our fellow creatures."
~ Erich Fromm
We share a mission. We believe this mission will change the world, and we work together to achieve it. We stand on each other's shoulders and bolster each other up to achieve more. We are always learning, teaching, and helping one another achieve our shared mission. We work as a team no matter where we are located in relation to each other.
The Transition inspires, encourages, supports, networks and trains individuals and their communities as they consider, adopt, adapt, and implement the Transition approach to community empowerment and action.We are passionate about bringing projects that promote organic farming, alternative transportation, clean drinking water, renewable energy, and green building together; directly from the grassroots individuals and organizations around the world who initiate them. With their help we blend the unique perspectives of our Contributors on the local scale to form global solutions. With our commitment to be a sustainable organization we make a point to work with the best local and global talent to share our vision for a better future, as well as work with us to make it a reality.
We contribute back to our communities in order to advocate a healthy lifestyle, the conservation of natural resources as well as use the medium of music and the arts to convey our message. With a special focus on street-involved youth and families living in poverty we encourage community involvement through voluntarism, education and programming. We help others enhance their food and housing security, learn life skills, as well as build confidence to make the transition to a more sustainable lifestyle and eventually a Global Egalitarian System. We strive to create an inclusive community where all members have the skills, confidence and support to live a healthy life. It is part of our pledge to each other, and to the world we are capable of creating, to help each other live life to the fullest. Because our method of production -within communities- is based on scientific benchmarks to meet everyone’s needs, instead of what’s most profitable, exchange between Contributors requires no monetary attachment.

I support the transition because I believe in being the living embodiment of solutions, not just another identifier of the problems our society faces. That means that the change begins with the transition of my own personal life, so that I may be more aligned with the changes I wish to see globally. I believe in the transition because it is a format that compassionately encourages an understanding of how we got here and what each of us can do right now to positively alter that reality. I believe our future is a give-give society, one in which information is openly shared, basic needs are truly met, and non-violent communication through consensus is used for decision making. The future I envision is a "back to the village" model in our organizing, back to the earth in our perma-culture landscaping designs, and back to our ancient history for the technologies, healing arts, esoteric theory and plant medicinals that help heal our world of confusion.
