Transition Towns Training

What are Transition Towns?

Transition Towns (TT) are communities that seek out methods for reducing energy usage as well as increasing their own self reliance in positive response to climate change and ever-escalating prices in fossil fuels.

As a globally-connected marketplace, we are coming to realize that unbridled growth is not sustainable, and that reliance on imports from afar may become an impossibility within just a few years.
