portland’s dignity village, and victoria’s transition town movement

Winds of Change:  Wendy Kohn talks about “Doorways to Dignity,” a feature-length documentary that follows the decade-long struggle to build Dignity Village, a democratic micro-town for homeless people.  Wendy is one of the founding members of Kwamba Productions, and they’ve been following the creation and evolution of Dignity Village, established by and for homeless people, for over a decade.  In the second half, Tamara Schwartzentruber talks about the Transition Town Movement, which began in England and is now two years old in Victoria BC. Transition Victoria is part of a global grassroots movement supporting citizen action toward reducing oil dependence and building local community resilience and ecological sustainability.
