Event Description

This event is part of the 2015 Mid-Atlantic Transition Hub (MATH) Teleseminar Series "The Maturation of a Social Movement: A Regional Response to a Critique of the Transition Movement," in response to the Simplicity Institute paper "The Transition Movement: Questions of Diversity, Power, and Affluence."

  • How can we ensure that Transition isn’t primarily a pleasurable movement for predominantly white, educated, post materialist, middle class small community people?

  • How might we pay more attention to the community power dynamics conditioned by ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic stratification that shape community relationships and fold this into our work?

  • How might we address the fact that:

    -- resource depletion and climate change will effect various groups in different ways?
    -- some people are more adaptable than others given that there are aspects of change that have more to do with historical power than place?

  • How can we honestly look at and skillfully work with various levels of vulnerability between communities and competing interests within communities?

Recording and/or Handouts:
--Blog post: Resilience for whom, and to what end?
--"Transitioning for All" PDF overview of questions panelists will address
