The Communications working group (John G., Tina and Gabor) had a very energetic meeting on June 13th to plan the Internet presence of the ‘All Things Local store’ (ATL) project. Here is what we discussed:
The project will be documented on the Transition Amherst website, as we mutually want to support each other in our goals, since they are similar: to make our community more resilient, food or otherwise. But the project would get a larger representation than just this single blog page, with information on static pages, a facebook page and ways to sign up. Our names below represent who does what. All content will be sent to gaborzol at gmail dot com, so Gabor can update the site with the changes.
Under Projects we would have a description/summary page (Tina) and several sub-pages under that, for example about:
- Who are we (working groups, task teams, advisors) (John)
- Timeline (history and future) (Tina)
- Collaborators (check with them first) (Tina)
- Resources (Local roots documents, other info) (John)
- Links (Blogs, external info on Co-operatives, etc.) (John, Gabor)
We also would have ways to get involved (signup for mailing list) (Tina, Gabor)
A facebook page (Emily could work on that?)
A little box announcing the next event (Gabor)
All activities announced on the calendar (everyone)
These pages/locations would be linked from other appropriate pages (Tina, Gabor).
Monitor the rest of this site for these changes in the near future!
