We are connected to Transition U.S., a national organization of grassroots community initiatives that build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change, and the economic crisis. We also recommend a U.K. Transition blog: Transition Culture.
We sponsor events to help Fidalgo Island and the surrounding area become a resilient, close-knit, and caring community, able to sustain itself and thrive. We focus on creating opportunities to help move our community toward a positive, low-carbon future.
