Momentum is growing for launching a complementary currency system in Oahu. Join the early-stage discussion!
We will show a few selected short videos related to complementary currencies that describe LETS (local exchange trading systems), a paper currency called Ithaca HOURS, and a "transition" paper currency backed one-to-one by government-issue money.
We also plan to demo a LETS system online.
The videos are short so we have time to discuss options for Oahu and begin to chart next steps!
Here's the Table of Contents for the DVD we put together:
Great opportunity for community building and raising awareness about the value of sustainable agriculture on three consecutive Friday evenings in November. A different farm each evening. The format is 5pm farm tour, free pupus (and potluck if you like please consider local & organic ingredients & BYO utensils/dishes/cups), then 6pm film followed by discussion with featured special guests (come anytime, better than not at all!!!)

The Crisis of Civilization is a documentary feature film investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system.
Weaving together archival film footage and animations, film-maker Dean Puckett, animator Lucca Benney and international security analyst Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed – author of A User’s Guide to the Crisis of Civilization: And How to Save It – offer a stunning wake-up call proving that ‘another world’ is not merely possible, but on its way.
Ultimately, The Crisis of Civilization is a film about ideas: ideas that have gotten us into this mess,and ideas that can get us out – if we want to.
Hope you can make one of the screenings of the Economics of Happiness and/or the talk with Helena Norberg-Hodge! More info at http://www.transitionoahu.org/calendar.html#eoh
A reminder that we're putting on a screening of YERT - Your Environmental Road Trip on Monday, Feb 13. Get in the mood by watching the trailer. Hope to see you there!
(A couple newspaper listings have a different movie for Feb 13, but be assured, the film that screens will be YERT!)
Whidbey Island in Washington State is just over 1/4 the size of Oahu in area and much smaller in population. But this video on their Transition initiative has many ideas to offer as we implement transition here.
Don Brown has graciously offered to share proceeds of the Hawai`i premiere showing of GrowthBusters with Transition Oahu. Please support Transition Oahu, while you take in this enlightening movie.
