Team Up for a Thriving and Resilient Community

Join your neighbors in MacGroveland and Union Park, and our college communities at Macalester and St. Thomas, as we start a Transition group! Everyone is welcome.

Transition groups are grassroots and neighbor-led. People involved in Transition learn, adapt, and grow together as they take action to reduce their carbon footprint and adapt to a changing climate all while building a stronger, more socially connected local community.

Our Mission: Reimagining our local community empowered with tools to live lightly on the land and to thrive in a changing climate.

Our group would like to focus on creative approaches to food resilience, transit options, and community building, but Transition groups cover a wide range of topics, including renewable energy and energy conservation, reuse and recycling, climate preparedness, and more. Feel free to contribute with posts and comments

Transition Movie Night - Take Back Your Power

November 17, 2017, 6:30pm

This month's movie is "Take Back Your Power," a documentary looking at the rise of smart meters, used by utilities to remotely monitor home and business electrical use. (According to its website, Xcel has begun using these meters in Boulder, Colorado, but is not yet using them in Minneapolis.) The film provides evidence of in-home surveillance and privacy invasion, increased utility bills, health and environmental harm, home fires, and susceptibility for hacking. It also offers strategies citizens can use to prevent this technology from being installed. (For more information about the InPower movement, visit inpowermovement.com/.)

Transition Twin Cities Celebration Potluck

December 2, 2017, 6:00pm - December 2, 2017, 8:30pm

We're wrapping up one of the most successful years for Transition in the Twin Cities with a potluck celebration. There will be singing, storytelling and an open-space question inspired by Richard Heinberg's talk at the National Gathering: "What is a culture worth preserving and how do we build it?"

Bring a food or drink item to share, and a story of resilience in the face of challenge. Bring a friend from your local Transition group, or someone you know who is interested in Transition.

Although we head into a dark season, we carry a light with us. Let it shine - on this night and as we move forward into 2018.
