Transition Berkeley presents Within Reach a documentary film that follows one couple's pedal-powered adventure across the United States in search of sustainable community.
Mandy and Ryan have given up their corporate jobs and traditional houses to "bike-pack" thousands of miles around the USA, visiting eco-villages, coops, and Transition Towns, seeking to answer the question, Is it possible for all of us to live in a sustainable way? The adventures they have along the way and the people they meet living in cooperative community will warm your hearts and lift your spirits.
Following the film Associate Producer Raines Cohen, founder of Opportunities for Sustainable Community Living, will facilitate a conversation on our next steps for creating and finding community. Residents of local coops, co-housing and co-householding will be on hand to answer questions about their experience in cooperative communities.
Co-sponsored by: Transition Berkeley, East Bay Cohousing, and BFUU's Social Justice Committee.
