Googlemaps

Transition Google map of England

Transition Google map of England

The Googlemaps of transition initiatives around the world (http://transitiontowns.org/TransitionNetwork/Mulling) have received well over 50,000 hits in the last 18 months. It’s the place people go to see what’s happening in their neck of the woods and find out who to contact.

In the spirit of self-organisation, we’ve opened up these maps for editing by all transitioners, and are encouraging you to make sure there’s a key contact for each of the markers on the map.

To do this, you’ll need a google account (what!? not got one yet?) ( https://www.google.com/accounts/Login? ) and the rest is pretty user friendly.

  1. First sign into your Google account
  2. First, find the marker for your locale (warning: there are 3 maps for the UK, so make sure you’ve checked each one)
  3. click on the “edit” button on the left frame to put the map into edit mode
  4. next, click on your marker and add your email address
  5. click save
  6. Then keep an eye out for incoming mail from local cool transition-minded resilience-oriented community builders who want to work with you.

More detailed instructions are available here:

Any problems, please contact info[AT]transitionnetwork[DOT]org

  3. Those interested in Transition may also be interested in the Crash Course available free at http://www.chrismartenson.com.
