Each person in the US consumes the equivalent of 26 barrels of oil per year: 10 barrels are for food, 9 for cars & 7 for the house.
We have just 6 years to build a clean renewable energy economy.
Launching Your Transition Community
We are alive and awake in a time of great transition.
In 2005, Permaculture Designer Rob Hopkins, and a group of students in Kinsale, Ireland decided it was better to plan, build local resilience and be prepared than to be taken by surprise. They created an Energy Descent Action Plan for Kinsale and the Transition Town Movement began.
Today there are over 900 communities world-wide who are in the process of Transition — each community using its collective genius to build local resilience, reduce carbon and create a more abundant, connected and healthier future for all: Local artisans, food, clean energy, building materials, health care and services.
The Transition Movement is one of the most promising and creative ways to seize the opportunity to build a community life that is more fulfilling, more socially connected and more equitable than the one we have today.
