Sunday 5/25, the Publicity & Community Outreach WG met to plan the second half of 2014 events.
From its inception, with the formation of the Woodstock Transition Initiating Group in June, 2011, Publicity and Community Outreach have been central activities. In our first year we organized “raising awareness” events in the town, consisting of speakers, panels, discussions, and movies. The topics included water, food, waste management, tool exchange, permaculture, seed swap, and the new economy. Some of the movies shown were Transition 2.0, The Power of Community, … This first year culminated, in September of 2012, with our Woodstock Transition Festival. To publicize this event and to inform more Woodstock citizens of our endeavor, we personally visited each business owner in town. Between 200 and 300 people participated at the festival.
We are excited to have a site that offers more opportunities for member participation. If you are inspired to document Woodstock Transition activities in photos or writing, send them to info@woodstockNYtransition.org.
Each working group now has its own page. Check out the calendar for events, meetings, and projects. Together, lets make our website an informative and vibrant meeting place!
