Re-Igniting Community

Building Thrivable RESILIENT Communities

Transition Town Ashland has registered with the international organization, is setting up a website, and is planning a series of events to engage the community with building local resilience to the potentially damaging effects of peak oil while reducing the community's carbon footprint.

The concept rests on the idea that a resilient community which is self-reliant for the greatest possible number of its needs will be infinitely better prepared than existing communities with their total dependence on globalized systems for food, energy, transportation, health and housing. These actions will also serve to enhance the biodiversity of our bioregion.

Based in the principles of permaculture, the transition initiative is an evolving approach based on unleashing the collective genius of the specific community.
