It all starts when a small group of motivated individuals come together with a shared concern: How can our community respond to the challenges and opportunities of peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis?
The Transition Movement is a prime example of how individuals can make positive change in their community. All around the world, “transition towns” are taking steps to increase self-reliancy by utilizing local assets and mitigate the impacts of our fossil fuel dependency through citizen-led initiatives. There are over 360 official Transition Town initiatives in 34 countries, and 90 in the US spanning 27 states.
Visit the Transition United States or The Transition Network, where you can download handbooks, view web archives, and find out how to start Changing The Endgame in your own community.
