WHICH AREAS OF TRANSITION APPEAL TO YOU MOST?
The members of Wilmington in Transition believe that there is room for everyone to participate in moving our community (and, ultimately, our society) into a more vibrant, sustainable, resilient, and carbon-neutral future!
Whether you want to focus on:
- more and better bike paths (Transportation)
- urban community gardening (Agriculture/Food)
- support for local merchants (Economy)
- promoting and building local alternative energy systems (Energy)
- spreading the word about ‘greener’ lifestyle choices (Outreach/Education)
- grant writing to fund WIT projects (Fundraising)
- blogging about sustainability topics on the WIT website (Marketing)
- teaching soap-making, sewing, or lamp repair (Re-Skilling Events)
- creating/organizing/supporting local creative endeavors, festivals, and the arts (Arts/Entertainment)
- organizing and promoting local health care cooperatives (Health/Wellness)
… or something not even mentioned here… if you can visualize an endeavor in which to apply your interest, enthusiasm and talent, toward furthering our local resilience and community building, we think it is worthy of a working group!
You may have an interest in all of these things and you can join in multiple working groups – you decide your level of involvement! Our working groups ‘report back’ at the regular, monthly Wilmington in Transition general meeting, so you can always keep up with what others are doing, how you can coordinate efforts among group(s), and how you can attend, and participate in, events being offered by other groups!
Current working groups include:
- Food – contact Irene Morley
- Energy – contact Rob Goldberg
- Economy – contact Laura Philon
- Marketing/Outreach/Education – Mark Perri
- Transportation – contact Alex Durnan
- Fundraising – contact Medard Gabel
Please contact us here for information.
IF YOU SEE A NEED FOR A NEW GROUP – PLEASE BRING IT UP AT THE MONTHLY MEETING – We want to work on transition in every way that we can generate interest and willing participation!
