Just to let everyone know, our group is now an 'official Post Carbon Outpost'. See: http://www.postcarbon.org/groups/thornbury If anyone is trying to set up a Peak Oil group or is already in one, I'd love to share information.

Thanks.

What do you perceive as the benefits to your group of being a Postcarbon Institute outpost, as opposed to simply going it alone with your own ideas & agenda? And are there any drawbacks that you've encountered?

As an aside, it appeals to my sense of irony that the re-localization movement has given rise to this global syndicate Smile

Is this not like beeing an official chapter of Hells Angels?

Hello! PCI offers great space on their website plus when you join you get access to a Manual that has yet to be published. It is full of ideas for how to do audits in your town, how to organise screenings and facilitate discussions: it's quite hefty. So I'm certainly grateful for that access. Additionally, I 've had a number of people contact me who found me through PCI and that has meant that we are now part of someone's Master's dissertation! :) I think it's powerful to see how many groups there are via the PCI site. So that's another bonus.
