Transition Streets

Transition Streets  is a resource for neighbors to use to build resilience together. Guided by a user-friendly handbook, you can join with a handful of your neighbors to read and discuss clear and easy actions you can take. This involves simple living, resource sharing and collaboration for resilience. Have fun, become more connected with your neighbors and build personal resilience. Participants of Transition Streets saved money, reduced their carbon footprint and built community.

Central Street Gang

 “Our Transition Streets group had its final meeting last night and to a person folks spoke about the most meaningful aspect of the experience being the building of neighborhood caring and cohesion through getting to know one another…I believe this experience could be summed up by the words, ‘It built resilience in our neighborhood.'”

The Kensington Square Group

 “I would say that one of the greatest benefits of participating in a transition neighborhood group is information. I thought I was pretty well informed before forming this group, but I found that I had/have a lot to learn. It has been exciting to learn of the myriad actions my household can take to reduce energy and water usage, waste, provide our own food, etc.”

Here are reviews from two neighborhoods who have done it.

“Transition Towns, and now Transition Streets are some of the most logical, well planned and effective societal activities I have seen to begin reacting to the global warming reality we now have. They focus on tangible, useful and fun ways to rebuild our towns and streets in more efficient, less energy reliant ways that also result in a more livable world.”
