Communications Update

It could be argued that the Transition Movement would not have happened without everyday access to the web. From the Network site to Rob Hopkin's blog, Transition Culture to the initiatives' newsletters and googlegroups, the communications between people and other initiatives is multi-layered, creative, inventive. fast and highly productive (and sometimes overwhelming!)

At TN many of us write for the news,This Low Carbon Life and the FarmShare blogs, as well as tweet (under tnnorwich). We've also just added some regularly updated links to news items from the Transition Network and other Transition communities (see left hand column). Do let us know what you think or what you'd like to see more of. Meanwhile check out our latest social networking tool. Simeon Jackson reports:

Although Transition Norwich has been on Facebook since 2007 (which is before Transition Norwich had even been unleashed!), we have recently been making efforts to bring everything up to date, and to guide anyone interested in Transition towards relevant information.

Ever since Facebook came onto the online scene, it has been a fantastic tool for spreading the word about new concepts, ideas and events. We would love to use it to its full potential: to tell stories of our transition experience; to raise awareness of peak oil, climate change, and the potentials of the transition approach in tackling them; to expand Transition Norwich and include Facebook users as part of the Transition Norwich community.

You can help progress Transition Norwich through facebook by: - Joining the facebook group - Inviting your friends to the facebook group, or to our events - Posting on your wall about Transition Norwich and what we are doing - Sharing news articles, blog posts, events and websites by posting links on your wall. Happy Facebooking!
