Transition towns

Transition Towns is a globe-spanning movement that provides a framework for creatively developing local resilience as a solution to climate change and energy scarcity (peak oil).

The first Transition Town (Transition Town Totnes, UK) began its work in 2006 and the Transition model has already been exported around the world including to Guelph, Peterborough, and Ottawa, Ontario.

Based on the principles of permaculture, Transition Towns offer relief from the stressful, negative messages surrounding climate change and energy scarcity by focusing on co-operative, healthful, community-based solutions.
