Apr 30: Transition 2.0 film screening

Transition 2.0!  

If you want to know the present state of Transition both here in Pittsburgh and all over the globe, this is your movie (site and trailer here!). It covers Transition Initiatives and the diverse, powerful communities driving their relocalization and community-rejuvenation efforts, from Europe to Asia to America and beyond, including an appearance by the Whitney Avenue Urban Farm right here in Wilkinsburg!

The filmmakers' description:  "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".

7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30) at the Kingsley Association, 6435 Frankstown Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15206 (East Liberty).  After a short introduction to Transition Pittsburgh's recent activities.  The audience can stay afterwards for group discussion of Transition in Pittsburgh past, present, and future with Fred Brown, Associate Director for Program Development, Kingsley Association.  For additional information contact: Wanda Guthrie 412-596-0066 or email: environment@thomasmertoncenter.org
