Green World Trust[edit source]
- Hi Lucy - great to get your response. I like what you're doing with Green World Trust, and am very interested in the idea of working together - our skills and efforts could be very synergistic.
- Initial comments on Green World Trust:
To provide a friendly supportive forum for "think global, act local" initiatives
- Great! Very likeminded!
To establish and support local action groups or "Wisdom Circles" concerned with ustainability, planetary awakening, personal development, and global citizenship
- We'd love to support this, and work on providing the networking, collaborative and content infrastructure needed.
To assist those in need, in part by the provision of Life Coaching and Counselling
- Probably outside Appropedia's scope, but good stuff all the same. We'll no doubt learn more about this as the conversation progresses.
To build up a neutral source of user-friendly "snappy facts" information regarding ecologically and socially sustainable practices, for beginners as well as experts
- That sounds like a bullseye description of one of our central goals.
To liaise with the "cutting edge" of planetary initiatives and networking whose aims are to help the planet and redirect humanity's energies toward sustainability and awareness of our present critical state and what we can do to rectify this
- Again, we see Appropedia as moving and supporting efforts in this area.
To develop a way of grading consumer products according to how planet-friendly they are "from cradle to grave"
- Hmm. Just came across Ecolect and ecospecifier (and have now added those links to Material). We should have a close look and a think, and start a conversation about how we can all work together.
- Btw, we've now got The Appropedia Forums - Beta running - soon to be launched. Just thought I'd mention as it's not prominent yet, but you want to check out the site thoroughly. Look forward to hearing more from you! --Chriswaterguy · talk 06:28, 18 December 2007 (PST)
Wikipedia article[edit source]
Not that I want to distract either of us from our work, but a Wikipedia article, Wikipedia:Transition Town, would be good. Someone else started but it was deleted (see Wikipedia:Transition towns for the deletion log - seems like at least one of the previous attempts was a an incomplete and perhap poorly written article, but recreating the article should be fine). If you want to start it, be sure and let me know and I'll check it over to make sure it avoids overenthusiastic "deletionist" admins. References from notable publications (inline refs or in External links) are important. --Chriswaterguy · talk 23:41, 6 January 2008 (PST)
- Problem solved - I see it's there now, at Wikipedia:Transition Towns.
- I don't know how best to contact you but I emailed about my upcoming visit to London. --Chriswaterguy 22:11, 5 June 2008 (PDT)
