East Bay Transition

We truly don't know if this will work. Transition is a social experiment on a massive scale.

What we are convinced of is this:

if we wait for the governments, it'll be too little, too late
if we act as individuals, it'll be too little
but if we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time.

There's not an ivory tower in sight, no professors in musty oak-panelled studies churning out erudite papers, no slavish adherence to a model carved in stone.

We can't sit back and wait for someone else to do the work. It's up to us.

Thanks for letting us know about the short news brief video about Totnes pound. I just posted it to the video library at this SITE and check out the other "local currency" videos as well. And there are better ones and more in depth ones about the Totnes Pound and other forms of local currency...

Hi Dave,

yes we screened it at Dancing Deer in Templeton where we also had Cecile Andrews speak afterwards (she was in the film). A good film spelling out the problems in a historical fashion with a number of fine folks being interviewed. Id suggest watching the TRAILER and if one shows it to perhaps have a panel of at least two people to speak about all the solutions that are happening already since the film really doesnt get into the solutions.

For their website click HERE.

A colleague of mine recently finished a movie and he is trying to get some screenings. Its called "Consume This Movie", and its about our consumptive culture but also has a nice segment about oil that doesn't beat you over the head with it. Anyway I think its pretty good, but I am biased because I have a few lines in it. If anyone might be interested in doing a screening and tying it into Transition activities, I am sure the Director would be interested in working with East Bay Transition. The Director is a local guy, Gene Brockoff .
Please use this link to send around to your contacts.

Here is the web site

Also on YouTube there are three more excerpts for the film
