Transition Fidalgo & Friends is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, all-volunteer organization.

Transition Fidalgo and Friends’ mission statement: to raise awareness of and develop solutions to the challenges of climate change, energy uncertainty, and economic instability. Transition Fidalgo & Friends promotes a move away from fossil fuels through decreasing demand, increasing efficiency, supporting renewable energy, and fostering the local production of food, energy, and goods.

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.

Locally, we work with Chuckanut Transition and Transition Whatcom to empower life beyond fossil fuels in the Pacific Northwest.
