Transition Town Greater Media
We are a group of neighbors and friends working to build a stronger, more resilient future for all of us in the Greater Media Area. Like you, we are concerned about the rising costs of living, climate change, access to healthy food and water, and living in a way that reduces our impact on the planet. We recognize that our government and institutions can’t adequately address all these concerns and that it is up to us, as a community, to strengthen our local economy and to keep ourselves and our families happy and healthy.
Transition efforts are designed to help our community become more self-sufficient, economically and socially vibrant, and enriched through personal connection.

Climate Change requires urgent action. Adaptation to a world with less reliance on fossil fuels is inevitable and it is better to plan and be prepared than be taken by surprise. We believe using our creativity and cooperation to unleash community genius and local solutions will lead to a more abundant, connected and healthier future for all.
