What Are You Transitioning To?
After the historic climate accord in Paris, people are looking for ways they can take action and make a difference. In Transition groups across the Twin Cities, neighbors and friends are coming together to create a more resilient, more sustainable future by:
- Reducing energy use and making the switch to more renewable energy sources
- Supporting a healthy, local food system
- Consuming differently and producing less waste
- Building a stronger local economy
- Increasing their transit choices
- Preparing for more extreme weather and a changing climate
- Helping people prepare for change while building a stronger, more cohesive community
Learn more about this global, grassroots, volunteer-led movement by checking out the Twin Cities Transition groups listed on this website. Visit a meeting, participate in an activity, join a Facebook group.
If there is no group in your area, you can visit any group. Although they operate in certain geographic areas, everyone is welcome. Better yet, start a group in your part of town. It’s easy. There are folks in existing groups who would be happy to talk with you and the Transition Hub offers access to resources and training to help you get started. Contact Leslie MacKenzie.
Transition thinks global and acts local
Transition US and the global Transition network have engaged hundreds of thousands of people in community action across the planet — people of all ages, races, religions and income levels. The challenge of climate change will affect us all. By working together we can help to shape our shared future.
