So much of our lives is filled with extraneous non-information and “knowledge” that when something comes along which looks like a duck, walks like a duck and is certainly the real thing, I’m going to try to promote it.
Eric Garland is calling all folks who yearn to know more about exactly what this decade is all about, what brought us here and where we are actually going and why. Transition Economics 2014 will be held in St. Louis in May and aims to stuff together experts, professors, business leaders, investors and well, just about anyone interested in building a better future, all in the same room.
This information needs out
People like Eric and his cohorts need our help disseminating important ideas and developing new stories about a transition from what we all moan about as being “broke” to something new. If I or Eric had infinite capital this conference would be nationally touted on the airwaves as an alternative to faux feel good fluff, as a journey into the real, raw hard process of crunching real data and thrashing out real solutions to help any community complete a successful transition, dealing with big trends and tough realities.
A subscription to the Wall St. Journal, or to those cabal channels, a trip to six flags, when you tot up important information units per dollar, Transition Economics probably wins hands down because of the voices being hosted.
A webcast and DVD are possibilities further expanding the message of Transition to people who need to hear it.
These thinkers need our help
If you have the means and the interest I highly recommend attending, not least that these thinkers can get together and start making noise, noise that can be noticed nationally, internationally, becoming part of a wider transition lexicon which can help guide people in gaining actionable intelligence to secure a bright future.
Go, talk, drink, laugh, cry, BUILD.
