Our Challenge

The two toughest challenges facing humankind at the beginning of the 21st century are climate change and peak oil. While climate change is well documented and very visible in the media, there is much less public awareness around the issue of peak oil. And yet, the imminent decline of fossil fuel availability that peak oil refers to may well prevent the economic and social stability that is essential if we are to mitigate the threats posed by climate change. Transition Initiatives, designed to achieve relocalization at the community level, currently represent one of the most promising ways of engaging people and communities in strengthening themselves against the effects of these two monumental challenges, resulting in a life that is more fulfilling, socially connected and resilient.
