Laboratory is honored to offer this vital event:
What Is The Transition Movement?
An Evening with Michael Brownlee from Transition Boulder
Thursday, January 29th, 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Please join us at the Lab on Thursday, January 29th from 7:30 - 9:30 pm for a very special and important talk with Michael Brownlee of Transition Boulder
County. The Transition Movement is proving to be the most inspiring and
fastest growing social movement in human history. The Detroit Evolution
Laboratory shares its vision whole-heartedly and has already been working to
reach many of the same goals, long before we even knew such an organized
movement existed. So, what is Transition?
Now in all 50 states, Transition empowers communities to squarely face the
challenges of peak oil and climate change, and to unleash the collective genius
of their own people to find the answers to this momentous question: For all
those aspects of life that this community needs to sustain itself and thrive,
how are we going to drastically reduce carbon emissions (in response to climate
change), significantly rebuild resilience (in response to peak oil), and
greatly strengthen our local economy (in response to economic instability that
we are so familiar with in Detroit)?
Transition Initiatives, designed to achieve relocalization at the community
level, represent one of the most promising ways of engaging people and
communities in strengthening themselves against the effects of these monumental
challenges, resulting in a life that is more fulfilling, socially connected,
and resilient. Hundreds of communities around the world are joining together in
the fastest-growing social change movement in history, unleashing their
collective genius to meet the greatest challenges of our time.
Michael Brownlee is co-founder of Transition Boulder County, a non-profit
organization whose mission is to catalyze, inspire, encourage, network, support
and train communities as the consider, adopt, adapt and implement Transition
Initiatives. Transition Boulder County recently became the first Transition
Initiative in North America. A catalyst for relocalization - developing
community resilience and self-reliance in food, energy, and economy - Michael spearheads
the organization's campaign to rebuild community and strengthen economies.
