∂ part of node [[transition-town]]
- or grassroot community project
- based around local self-managed communities
- alternate currencies
- big in the UK
- there's a focus on peak oil -- I had almost forgotten about the concept. is it happening? I get the feeling peak oil is always in the imminent future but we keep missing deadlines.
I'm personally interested in the digital aspects of such projects -- in particular as they become networked.
- It seems to me the internet makes virtual transition towns possible, and perhaps useful as a metaphor, although I wonder what the people actually involved on actual transition towns would think of this idea (as the focus seems to be on local development and sustainability).
