Transition Towns. Preparing for peak oil, climate change, rising prices

The future with less oil could be better than the present, but only if we engage in designing this Transition with creativity and imagination. –Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition Towns movement

What exactly is a Transition Town?

A Transition Initiative (which could be a town, village, university or island etc) is a community-led response to the pressures of climate change, fossil fuel depletion and increasingly, economic contraction. There are thousands of initiatives around the world starting their journey to answer this crucial question:

For all those aspects of life that this community needs in order to sustain itself and thrive, how do we significantly rebuild resilience (to mitigate the effects of Peak Oil and economic contraction) and drastically reduce carbon emissions (to mitigate the effects of Climate Change)?”

Tip. Green Lisa, who commented here, mentioning Transition Culver City, which is an excellent example of this thriving internationally-based yet local initiative.
