My reflections on the conference
My reflections on the conference is that it should be considered a watershed event for the region, a change point for communities. Three threads came through 1) we can change a community’s attitude from blame to personal responsibility to do something, 2) build connectivity, and 3) don’t wait for someone else or for some kind of permission.
At Transition Bay St Margarets, we continue to integrate our projects and events into the community, and have gained the respect of, and are partnering with, many other groups. In addition, we assist and educate other groups throughout the Atlantic region about the Transition Movement.
