Newtown Transition
The Transition Initiative is a vibrant, grassroots movement that seeks to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change, and the economic crisis.  It represents one of the most promising ways of engaging people in strengthening their communities against the effects of these challenges, resulting in life that is more fulfilling, equitable and socially connected.  Transition Initiatives engage their communities in home grown, citizen led education, action and planning to increase local self reliance and resilience.  Now is the time for us to start re-creating our future in ways that are based on localized food, sustainable energy sources, resilient local economies and an enlivened sense of community well being.
