We need a network of Community Economic Development and Empowerment local efforts. That’s how I look at Transition Towns. This economic development should take the form of local non-profit cooperatives, each shaped by local circumstances. That is what I can help with, here in central Michigan (lower peninsula).

I agree that Transition Initiatives shouldbe seen as alternative economies. This doesn’t mean they all need their own currency, but without cheap energy the economy as we know it will disappear. The big question is what will it be replaced by? Localised provision of food etc. is the only way. I wonder how much research/thought has gone into localising other key & currently centralised needs, such as sanitation?
