Due to the size of Los Angeles (approx. 10 million people in the county), "Transition Los Angeles" is instantly by definition a regional-level effort.
Within the area that comprises Los Angeles, we've organized our Transition efforts in "pods." These pods might be from any of the following:
- pods based on existing FUNCTIONAL ORGANIZATIONS like churches, schools, community groups, Rotary -- places where people already gather (even if they have to drive cars to get there);
- pods based on LOCAL NEIGHBORHOODS defined by close physical proximity -- a more pure relocalization effort;
- pods based on INTEREST TEAMS such as those used by Transition Town Totnes -- Heart & Soul groups, Local Food groups, Transport groups, etc.
As our Transition efforts blossom in Los Angeles, we hope to grow, connect with, and support many, many more pods. If you or your local group are working with Transition ideas in the greater Los Angeles area, contact us, and let's get to know each other!
