Group Description

We are individuals in Palm Beach County who would like to see a Transition Initiative get off the ground in our community.

From TransitionUS.org: "The Transition Movement is comprised of vibrant, grassroots community initiatives that seek to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. Transition Initiatives differentiate themselves from other sustainability and "environmental" groups by seeking to mitigate these converging global crises by engaging their communities in home-grown, citizen-led education, action, and multi-stakeholder planning to increase local self reliance and resilience."

"We are living in an age of unprecedented change, with a number of crises converging. Climate change, global economic instability, overpopulation, erosion of community, declining biodiversity, and resource wars, have all stemmed from the availability of cheap, non-renewable fossil fuels. Global oil, gas and coal production is predicted to irreversibly decline in the next 10 to 20 years, and severe climate changes are already taking effect around the world."

The Transition Movement offers a way for concerned individuals to take action in a direct, meaningful way. By relocalizing and building resilience in our communities, we will be strengthening ties to our neighbors in a purposeful way that will prepare us for an uncertain future, whether it includes peak oil, climate change, or simply the next hurricane. We can never go wrong with increasing our understanding and appreciating the value of the people with whom we share our communities!
