TRANSITION TOWNS is a wonderful experiment in community action.

'The Transition Movement is an increasingly global movement which seeks to inspire, catalyze and support community responses to Peak Oil and Climate Change. It is positive and solutions-focused, and is developing a diversity of tools for building resilience and happiness around the world. From awareness-raising and local food groups, to creating local currencies and developing ‘Plan Bs’ for their communities, Transition movement seeks to embrace the end of the Oil Age as being a tremendous opportunity – the opportunity for a profound rethink of much that we have come to take for granted.' ( from the 'Transition Timeline'). The movement started in England and has "gone viral" - it is now represented in countries around the globe and gaining ground rapidly.

 The mission of Transition Towns is...
          To inspire
          To encourage
          To connect
          To support and
          To train
and to have fun while doing it !
