TransitionNC web site
It's been a long time coming, but the Transition NC website is finally up and running at www.TransitionNC.org.
The main purpose of the website is to allow transitioners from each location to get in touch with each other to get things moving in your own location. I would therefore ask you to find time to register and 'reply' to the 'Contacts' section in the Forum against your own Parish. You will then hopefully see others in your Parish to contact and start organising yourselves.
Any feedback on the website would be greatly appreciated!
I have originally set the web site up back in April using facilities kindly provided free of charge by a member. Unfortunately, this service was later withdrawn and so I had to recreate the unfamiliar system elsewhere, which has taken some time and the result is not as good as the original. Hopefully I will be able to improve it over time - if you are familiar with Drupal system and can help, please let me know.
The most important part of the website is the 'Forum'. Here anyone can set up new 'topics', either for a particular Parish or for North Cornwall as a whole. This could be anything from the 'appalling weather' to the likelihood of the 'survival of the human species' - your forum, your choice.
I have set up a few initial 'topics' to get things started:
Each Parish has a topic 'Forum'. The idea is to either enter something about yourself or about events or news from your Parish and hopefully, after a short while, you should be able to see who else is active/ interested in Transition in your neighbourhood. You should then be able to setup meetings or discuss possible events on line within your own group.
I have also set up a few of the type of 'topics' (in the 'NEWS, ...' section of the Forum) that may be useful across North Cornwall as well as within your Parish. However, the choice of 'topics' is entirely up to you.
Good luck and lets get things moving!
