What are Transition Towns? How can this model address the many challenges we face in our world today? How can you help to create a Berkeley Transition Town? The Transition Town Movement is an international grassroots effort to harness the collective genius of ordinary people to find solutions to the serious challenges of climate change, peak oil and economic instability. It represents one of the most promising ways of engaging people in strengthening their communities against the effects of these challenges, resulting in a life that is more abundant, fulfilling, equitable and socially connected. Berkeley will be launching its own Transition Initiative; you are invited to participate in a lively discussion to learn more about Transition Towns, how they work and how you can get involved. Meet representatives from Bay Localize, Berkeley's Climate Action Plan, Transition Albany and San Francisco. Learn how you can be a part of this exciting effort to transition from fossil fuel dependency to a more engaged, interdependent and resilient community.
