Economic relocalisation (eg. local currencies, resource sharing, social and sustainable enterprise, etc)
Social cohesion (bringing neighbours and people with shared interests and values together)

Outreach and education (getting the message out to others, including those not necessarily already part of the "choir"
Transportation and energy (how to run our homes and businesses - and how to run around town - on less and more renewable energy)
Housing and the build environment (how to construct homes and communities sustainably and on a human scale)
Emergency preparedness (getting our communities prepared for disasters and other emergencies, contributing to a greater sense of community at the same time)
