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.
Earth Care seeks to listen to and work with all concerned religious communities and individuals in order to create an ever-widening circle of care for creation. We urge all Indiana's faith communities to be centers of this care by living more prudently and speaking up for policies that embody creation care.
We are the Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society. Our mission is to promote the appreciation, preservation, conservation, utilization and scientific study of the flora native to Indiana and to educate the public about the values, beauty, diversity and environmental importance of indigenous vegetation.
