Transition Network

Project Type:
urban planning design strategy

Project Mission/Goal:
increase awareness of the environment and/or address climate change

Project Description:
The Transition Network is a group of like-minded individuals who are committed to facing climate change and peak oil head on. By creating a Transition Town, community members focus on transitioning their town and way of life from one dependent on petroleum products, to a more resilient local economy. This can take many forms, from simple measures such as starting community vegetable gardens and ride-sharing networks, to the creation of renewable power-generation companies and instituting local forms of currency.
