Become informed so you can take action for a better future!
Learn about this positive, community-building response to the economic, climate and energy crises. The information provided in the introductory presentation, and 2-day course will powerfully impact your life choices.
The Transition Movement is a vibrant, grassroots process for building community resilience in the face of such challenges as climate change, peak oil, and economic crisis. As a complement to existing sustainability efforts, Transition Initiatives empower people to adopt ways of life that are more abundant, fulfilling, equitable, sustainable, and socially connected.
Responses from participants of the May 16 & 17 New York City training:
"It certainly worked for me to feel comfortable and experience a new synthesis"
"Two days, fully packed, delivered with heart and soul and a higher consciousness perspective"
"...there was so much valuable information."
Read about Transition Initiatives in the April 19 New York Times Magazine.
