“Only a crisis, actual or perceived, produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes politically inevitable.” …Milton Friedman
Imagination and a positive vision is how we begin.
Imagine a resilient community in which. . .
how we live nourishes the earth
our needs are met locally
we find joy in working and playing together
How can we become that community?
By re-imagining the way we live!
Transition Town Media is part of the great adventure of learning to live more sustainably on a planet with finite resources. Across the country and around the world, Transition communities are becoming more resilient by growing their own food, re-learning basic skills, localizing economies, re-thinking health care and transportation, installing solar panels, accessing the talents and energy of youth, honoring the wisdom of elders and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
