Meeting to form Transition Town Warkworth
No doubt you are aware of climate change. Maybe you have heard of peak oil. But what can you do?
Peak oil and climate change will drastically change the way we live. Food, transport and energy costs are predicted to soar. Weather patterns will change. Humankind will face unprecedented challenges.
While it means big changes in everyday life, it doesn’t mean doom and gloom. Communities throughout Aotearoa have started taking a proactive and creative grassroots approach:
- rebuilding communities, sharing
- ideas and skills, growing food locally and
- solving their own unique problems.
Transition Towns are communities looking peak oil and climate change squarely in the eye. The movement began in England and is spreading across the world. By unleashing collective genius of our communities, we can drastically reduce carbon emissions and thrive in the face of peak oil.
What can I do?
Share your hopes and dreams for your community; share your expertise and experiences. Most importantly, get stuck in and transform our community, and our world.
