Many Quakers today, and others, feel called to a spiritually fulfilling, socially just, and ecologically sustainable human presence on our planet. The Transition Network began in the UK in 2006. Transition communities around the world are developing their own ways to confront issues such as climate change and peak oil, developing positive alternatives to “business as usual”. Transition is grass-roots and local, working to improve quality of life now and into the future in a sustainable, resilient, and enjoyable manner.
Friends in Bluffton, Ohio are involved in organizing a Transition initiative in Bluffton. Our group is sponsoring a Transition Training weekend seminar with experienced trainers from Transition US to learn about launching a local Transition initiative. Anyone interested in learning more about the Transition movement or starting something in your community is invited to attend. The training will be held February 25-26 in Bluffton. Details and registration information can be found on the Transition Bluffton website.
