It was a clever name for a very serious event in Sebastopol, California. Sponsored by the Post Carbon Institute, it was a launch of their Ten Steps for Individuals programme for weaning ourselves off of our oil addiction. The key message is one familiar to kiwis and frogblog readers – localise!
While the programme was very California specific, Kiwis can get into the act by getting involved in the Transition Towns movement, which is growing by leaps and bounds across our country. Their 12 Key Transition Steps are a great way to get organised, but many of us should start by getting in touch with our nearest group.
