Resilience Is The Key Word

What is the Transition Town Movement? It is a worldwide movement, working off a template created in Totnes, UK. They are comprised of vibrant, grassroots initiatives that seek to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis.

Whatever your conclusions may be regarding Peak Oil and global warming -- if you are inspired by common sense, sustainability, permaculture and strong communities-- you will want to learn more about the Transition Town movement.

This video spotlights a forward thinking farm in North Carolina: they live in community, grow their own food, make their own bio fuels, they create structures made out of straw bale and clay, they have a windmill.

They believe that by 2050 we should be fully self sufficient if we're going to survive whatever world we have by then.

The real point is: they believe these changes are positive, satisfying and practical in their own right, even if our energy intense lifestyle were to somehow remain unchanged by then.
