TRANSITION RENO & EnAcT Present: 10/10/10 – The Great Unleashing. The Great Unleashing is a one-day event on the 10 of October, 2010, that will engage a collective response to a transition away from fossil fuels into a localized, resilient community. Learn what Transition is about, hear an inspiring keynote speaker, eat a free delicious lunch, and make community connections by participating in a collective envisioning of a vibrant, dramatically less energy dependent Reno. This brainstorming event will kick-off the process of creating a long-term Energy Descent Action Plan, a game plan for a thriving Reno in a powered-down future, by prioritizing and forming Action Groups. Showcase of local groups involved in sustainability. Jana Vanderhaar. Tom Miller.
