Here is a link to CBC’s Ideas show on degrowth. It is a thoughtful look at how keeping it simple and small can be good for us AND good for the planet. It’s worth a listen:
* April 24th: next Transition meeting!
* Sources of Knowledge Conference: May 2-4,2014
This site has been created as a gathering spot for ideas, announcements, and resources for those interested in building resilience on the Northern Bruce Peninsula. Following the plan laid out in Rob Hopkin's guide 'The Transition Handbook', we are a collection of interested citizens who are charting a course toward sustainable and joyful life with less oil.
A Transition Initiative is a community working together to look Peak Oil and Climate Change squarely in the eye and address this BIG question:
"for all those aspects of life that this community needs in order to sustain itself and thrive, how do we significantly increase resilience (to mitigate the effects of Peak Oil) and drastically reduce carbon emissions (to mitigate the effects of Climate Change)?"
