Welcome to Transition Monmouth! 

Please see link to Eco-tour info below.

We are residents of Monmouth County forming a grassroots Transition Initiative, inspired by the concept developed by Rob Hopkins and friends in the UK (see sidebar). Our mission is to encourage communities to take a proactive approach to the ecological and economic challenges of our time through bringing things closer to home. We seek to connect with and promote individuals, organizations and businesses that are building resilience with sourcing of food, energy, and other aspects of life!

We seek to raise awareness of our options for creating healthy, sustainable communities and to help implement them. We believe that by getting involved, taking action and re-localizing our communities, we can improve our health, prosperity, and happiness. We welcome your participation. 

Please join our Facebook group and/or our Google group for the latest activity and to get to know us. If you have questions, comments or are interested in joining or starting a working group, please send us an email at transition-monmouth-info@googlegroups.com.

For more background information, please see transitionus.org and transitionnetwork.org.
Transition 2.0 is a great introduction to the movement, please see https://archive.org/details/transitionmovie2
