Transition Houston Core Team Meetings

The Initiating Team has begun to transform into the Core Team, composed of representatives of Neighborhood Transition Initiatives and Action Groups.  We plan to meet on the last Tuesday of each month (a week before the Transition Houston Hub meeting).  If you would like to join us for these meetings please contact us at transitionhouston@gmail.com.

 

Transition Neighborhood Meetings

Transition neighborhoods are becoming very active.  Some of our most active neighborhoods include Transition Midtown, the Clear Lake Transition Initiative, and Transition Old Sixth Ward.  Meeting dates and times vary by group.  Please contact us at transitionhouston@gmail.com about joining an existing neighborhood or to form a local community in your area.

    I chair Northwoods Green, the sustainability committee at Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Church in The Woodlands. I have read “Transition Handbook” and have a good understanding of peak oil, climate change and economic and social collapse.
    Our group is trying to educate our congregation and the surrounding community about the need to transition to a low-carbon lifestyle and to develop a strong local economy consisting of food production, renewable energy, and sustainable manufacturing.
    We may be able to get a Transition Woodlands started sometime in the near future. I look forward to learning more about the Houston movement.

  4. AAh I can’t believe I missed the meeting by just a couple of days!

    I just moved to Houston and am currently trying to get involved as much as possible in my activist efforts. I’d be very happy to receive further information about future meetings or events, etc.

      Victoria,

      Welcome (back?) to Houston; we are so sorry that you missed our meeting but we have one every month and it isn’t that long until the next on February 1! I’ve added you to our Transition Houston email list so we can keep you up to date on what’s happening.

      By the way, there will be an inaugural meeting of the Media/Outreach Work Group at 7:30pm on Monday, January 18th, at the Brasil Coffee House, 2604 Dunlavy @ Westheimer. You are very welcome to attend and lend your experience!

      Please also check out our Transition Houston social network site; much good conversation happens there and you are welcome to join in.

    This looks interesting. I’ll come to tonight’s meeting…how fortuitous that I checked the site (for the first time) on a meeting day.

    I’m in the Humble area…have read Kunstler’s The Long Emergency and am now reading The Fourth Turning, by William Strauss.

    I have taken steps toward self-sufficiency and would like to know if there are like-minded people in the area.

      Looking forward to meeting you, Michelle!

      By the way, there are a number of people in the Woodlands and North-of-Houston area who are members of Transition Houston and/or Transition Woodlands. We can put you in touch with them.

  7. Christy Hitchens

    I’m interested in Transition Houston and also in contacting someone from the group starting up in the Heights, where I live.

    I have to miss the annual training, as I am having surgery on my foot the Thursday prior, but will start reading the website and all I can get my hands on, including the on-line archives. Thanks for being here!

    • transitionhouston

      Thanks for your interest, Christy!

      I’ll add you to our email list, so you will be informed of things going on in our Transition Houston space. If you want to be removed just let me know.

      I will also send your name to the folks I know who are in the Heights; most have been very involved in Transition Houston to the point that they haven’t had much time to start up Transition Heights, but perhaps with your interest and energy the group will come together.

      Also please check out (and I hope, join!) our Transition Houston ning group.

      Thanks again,
      Mark Juedeman
