The Transition Twin Cities effort works to educate people about sustainability, and climate and energy issues. We encourage neighborhoods to begin the journey to resilient and healthy communities built to thrive in the long term! Transition Twin Cities is inspired by the Transition Town framework. See also this listing of other Transition Towns in the region and the U.S.
Transition Twin Cities consists of many people who are putting energy into areas they are passionate about — be it neighborhood organizing, following the current research on energy supplies, helping people install inexpensive solar air panels on their homes, organizing film series, supporting and publicizing the importance of local food systems, and much more. Please join the conversation! Here are the most obvious ways:
- The discussion. Join the Transition Twin Cities listserv by going to http://groups.google.com/group/transition-twin-cities. Discussions are also ongoing at http://www.meetup.com/TransitionTownsTwinCities. Introduce yourself. Ask questions. Tell us what you’re doing or what you want to start. Ask if people want to join with you in your project. Chances are that your ideas will find a receptive audience and you will gain a number of creative collaborators.
- Neighborhoods. Send an email to your neighborhood contact (see the Neighborhoods pages), and find out what they’re planning and how you can get involved. If your neighborhood does not have a web page or a contact listed, be that contact person. Your stepping up will be welcomed! Send an email to email@example.com to request a web page on this site where you can let people know what you’re doing and how they can join in.
- Regular gatherings. Come to one of the growing number of frequent, informal meetings around the metro. See the Gatherings page for the current standing times. We are well aware that mornings during the work day (the Blue Moon Wednesdays) are not ideal for many people — there has long been a need for someone to “anchor” a regular evening meeting. If you see the value in that and are up for anchoring it (committing to being there or making sure someone else will be), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll post the time and place. As people who have stopped by the Blue Moon on Wednesday mornings often say, this is an amazingly easy way to catalyze action and connections with others working toward local resiliency in the face of peak oil and climate change.
