Address 5421 E Kings Rd
Bloomington, IN 47408
Description

It all starts off when a small collection of motivated individuals within a community come together with a shared concern: how can our community respond to the challenges, and opportunities, of Peak Oil, Climate Change, and Economic Shocks?

Four Key Assumptions of the Transition Town movement:

* That life with dramatically lower energy consumption is inevitable, and that it's better to plan for it than be taken by surprise.

* That our communities presently lack the resilience to enable them to weather the severe energy shocks that will accompany peak oil.

* That we have to act collectively, and we have to act now.

* That by unleashing the collective genius of those around us to creatively and proactively design our energy future, we can build ways of living that are more connected, more enriching and that recognize the biological limits of our planet.
