The FCSG Story
The Fort Collins Sustainability Group (FCSG) grew out of a meeting held in the spring of 2005, shortly after the Kyoto Protocol went into effect, between several people interested in getting the city to commit to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. Over the following months, others who viewed such a commitment as a way to strengthen the local economy in the wake of high technology sector job losses joined the new organization.
The Transition Movement is in well over a thousand highly diverse communities across the world - from towns in Australia to neighborhoods in Portugal, from cities in Brazil to rural communities in Slovenia, from urban locations in Britain to islands off the coast of Canada. Many of these initiatives are registered on the Transition Network website.
