Transition Network

The  Transition Network was initiated by Rob Hopkins to address the twin challenge of Peak Oil and Climate Change. The initiative builds on Rob's seminal work in Ireland to develop an Energy Descent Action plan for the town of Kinsale.
The thinking behind Transition Network is simply that a community using much less  energy and resources than currently consumed could, if properly planned for and designed, be more resilient, more  abundant and more pleasurable that the present. Given the likely disruptions ahead resulting from Peak Oil and Climate Change, a resilient community that is self-reliant for the greatest possible number of its needs will be infinitely better prepared than existing communities with their total dependence on heavily globalised systems for food, energy, transportation, health and housing.
