”Transition Towns” is a movement to prepare our towns and cities for the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change.
In the coming decades, climate change and peak oil will require us to radically re-think our lifestyles, and adopt a way of life that uses less energy.
This will need government legislation, and it will need individual actions, but we don’t need to wait for either of those.
Empowering Communities Transition Towns is about empowering communities to pull together and start grassroots initiatives in their local areas.
Each Transition Town is different and develops its own set of projects. These may include community gardens, car sharing, insulation and energy saving campaigns, and even local currencies.
