long-term vision
to make our community and neighborhoods more resilient
— more fun, skillful, creative, and just —
philosophy (born from the Transition Towns movement)
In response to on-going environmental, financial, political, and other foolishness, we are moved to agree to these assumptions:
> our community presently lacks the readiness, skills, and resources to handle the coming shocks likely from energy, weather, and social disruptions
> lower energy use is inevitable
> we have to act together and NOW to build community resilience
> it is better to plan and be ready than to be taken by surprise                     > that a local, resilient, fair, sharing, smart, fun future — if we work together creatively — will be better than the past
ways we are working to creating greater community resilience:
