Since moving to Port Townsend in Oct,
2006, I have been involved with a social action group called Local
2020, working toward local sustainability by the year 2020. There
is a re-localization movement emerging all over the world, in
response to the challenges of corporate globalization, peak oil,
climate change, and economic upheaval.
The way we live on the Earth is directed by the stories we internalize.
If we are to change how we live, we must change the stories. In
Dec, 2008, I decided to investigate video production as way present
stories, and work to change them. In the summer of 2009, I interviewed
14 people who make up the steering committee of Local 2020, with
the goal of presenting who we are, what we are trying to do, and
The output of this effort is presented here. Here is a YouTube
teaser to get you interested.
I also broke the interview into 6
parts, hosted on YouTube.
