I' d been planning on putting out feelers into my community by inviting people that are allready involved in different initiatives in my town that might fit under this umbrella, to a pot luck and discussion. I don' t think that would be a good idea now. What would you do instead to get the ball rolling?
I don' t think that these busy people are looking for another thing on their plate, but I thought at least we could all get a bit better connected... and who knows, maybe unearth a handful that would like to do transition. So my first goal was simply to network existing initiatives and people involved, and look for synergies or recurring needs.
The challenge is that the easiest way to do this is for people meeting face to face which is not so easy these days.
