Transition Towns Training

Apr 16 2010 - 9:00am - Apr 17 2010 - 5:00pm

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. They’re places that are more economically independent, ecologically sound, and socially connected. 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.

  • Why is cap and trade controversial?
  • What are other places doing to address climate change through law and policy?

Or, maybe you’re not even sure which questions to ask. Whatever the case, let the Environmental Law Centre (ELC) get you started. Read more »
