    A Collection of Resources for You & Your Neighbors to Create a Saner, Healthier Future Together


    This collection of books, online resources, trainings and courses was assembled by members and allies of the Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory (TRCC), who share a vision of a world that is sustainable, just, compassionate, and healthy.

    Building Thriving, Resilient Communities explores many exciting resilient systems being created in communities across the nation (and planet) that demonstrate how we can live more sustainably, and in community, while respecting Nature’s limits. More than just inspiring stories, this collection contains tools—practical, tested, hands-on ways you can begin making your community more resilient. And best of all, most of these steps—collaborating with neighbors, supporting local farmers and tradespeople, reducing dependence on globalized trade—are the right thing to do… even if we weren’t facing unprecedented challenges![image]

    Guide #3: Taking Steps Toward Resilience: Practical Projects
    Ideas, guides, and best practices for projects to mobilize your community - from relocalizing your food, energy, and economic systems to creating a culture of compassion and service

    Guide #4: Building a Movement: Tools for Effective Collaboration
    Tools to help you learn how to work effectively as a team, identify community resources and needs, and design an environment from which creativity and collective genius can emerge

    Guide to Building Thriving, Resilient Communities Empty Transition movie and The work that connects

    Post  B.B.Baghor on Sat Feb 22, 2014 4:33 pm

    The first you tubbies are movies by Transition Network UK, about the transition toward a community sense in practice. For example by inviting your neighbor to join hands in recycling domestic litter or guerilla gardening in the neighborhood.

    ‘In Transition 1’ is the first detailed film about the Transition movement filmed by those that know it best, those who are making it happen on the ground. The Transition movement is about communities around the world responding to peak oil and climate change with creativity, imagination and humor, and setting about rebuilding their local economies and communities.          It is positive, solutions focused, viral and fun.

    In the film you'll see stories of communities creating their own local currencies, setting up their own pubs, planting trees, growing food, celebrating local-ness, caring, sharing. You’ll see neighbors sharing their land with neighbors that have none, local authorities getting behind their local Transition initiatives, schoolchildren making news in 2030, and you'll get a sense of the scale of this emerging movement. It is a story of hope, and it is a call to action, and we think you will like it very much. It is also quite funny in places."

    "In Transition 2.0 is an inspirational immersion in the Transition movement, gathering stories from around the world of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. You'll hear about communities printing their own money, growing food, localising their economies and setting up community power stations. It's an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism. In a world of increasing uncertainty, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of growing vegetables in unexpected places"

    This third tubby is a teaching by Joanna Macey, in close encounters with the Transition Network UK, this is in 17 parts, a heartfelt presentation. I do hope you'll enjoy this.

    "The Work That Reconnects (WTR) is a workshop series that explores how to evoke creative, compassionate and transformational responses to the ecological crises of our time. Drawing from deep ecology, systems theory and spiritual traditions, the Work That Reconnects builds motivation, creativity, courage and solidarity for the transition to a sustainable human culture. First emerging in 1978, this pioneering, open-source body of work has its roots in the teachings and experiential methods of Joanna Macy.

    Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, Ph.D., is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. A respected voice in movements for peace, justice, and ecology, she interweaves her scholarship with four decades of activism. She has created a ground-breaking theoretical framework for personal and social change, as well as a powerful workshop methodology for its application.

    Guide to Building Thriving, Resilient Communities Empty Adam Purple's Garden of Eden

    Adam Purple's Garden of Eden

    A beautiful movie with some sadness, lots of inspiration in how to express love for nature in an urban area.

    "Film by Harvey Wang and Amy Brost In 1975, on the crime-ridden Lower East Side, Adam Purple started a garden
    behind his tenement home. By 1986, The Garden of Eden was world famous and had grown to 15,000 square feet.
    For Adam – a social activist, philosopher, artist, and revolutionary – the Garden was the medium of his political and
    artistic expression. It was razed by the city in 1986 after a protracted court battle. This film documents the creation
    of this artwork and its ultimate destruction. Winner of the "Neighborhood Award" at the Lower East Side Film Festival".

    It would've been better to kill me and not the garden" is what Adam Purple said, after the garden of Eden was gone.
