The Transition Town movement is the subject of this month's Green Drinks sustainability networking meeting.  Green Drinks will be held at Glas Green Coffeehouse on Wednesday, July 28th from 4:30-6pm.
 
In less than four years, nearly 1000 communities worldwide have committed to the Transition Town process.  We will discuss its potential locally.  As an introduction a film of a talk by founder of Transition Colorado Michael Brownlee will be shown.  Brownlee outlines how communities can best respond to changes in the world economy, coupled with declining oil reserves and extremes in climate change.
