What are you transitioning to?

Transitioning to a Sustainable Future

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 are coming together to create more resilient communities and a more sustainable future by:

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 and provide support for one another as we face the changes ahead.

Connect to a Transition group in your area

Check out the Twin Cities Transition groups listed on this website. Find the one nearest you, visit a meeting, participate in an activity, join their Facebook group.

If there is no group in your neighborhood, feel free to attend one in another community. Most Transition group activities are open to the public.

Better yet, start a group in your part of town. It’s easy. Contact the Transition Twin Cities organizer and share your name, email and neighborhood. When there are four people in your area who also want to start a group,  we'll connect you together and provide resources to help you get started.

Local Transition Trainings

Would you like to learn more about the issues that Transition covers, from a Minnesota perspective? Are you interested in starting Transition group but don't know where to begin? Two local Transitioners have developed a series of workshops to help you kick off your Transition journey. You'll get up to speed on energy, climate, food, waste, and economy. You'll learn about the Transition principles and explore your own interests and motivations for taking action.  (This is not the "official" Transition Town training and is not being presented by official Transition Town trainers.)

If you would like to be part of the next series, please fill out the interest form and we will contact you when 10 people have signed up.
