The Power of Community...

The Transition Handbook - even without the bad warmist climate science, Rob Hopkin's book is great value.

The Power of Community - How Cuba survived her own Peak Oil crisis in adopting permaculture principles. A profound inspiration on "the power of community".

Awakening - waking up to difficult news affects different people in different ways.

Open Space - "works best when the work to be done is complex, people & ideas involved are diverse, the passion for resolution (and potential for conflict) are high, and the time to get it done was yesterday.

World Cafe "conversations that matter" - like Open Space but a little more structured, with breaks to shake up groups.

Groups - nine different archetypal "directions" of Life - drawn from Native American wisdom

...to wage peace and green the desert... needs foundations in trust, truth, and transparent science...

If something is sustainable we can go on doing it indefinitely;
if it isn't — we can't- Jonathon Porritt
We support the rebuilding of sustainable community awareness,
in the light of limited planetary resources. We also support an open, transparent, accountable climate science.

Since discovering the corruption of the current Climate Science, we have paused in local community-building so as to take stock of the science issues that, being sidelined and misrepresented, appeared to be a problem needing more urgent attention than even Peak Oil. We have built up global links with the climate skeptics' community; and we still support Transition Towns in the development of creative responses to nonrenewable resources and energy supplies.
