Transition Humboldt is a community organization dedicated to developing local self-sustainable options in light of global climate change, the end of cheap oil and economic insecurities. Transition Humboldt events are free to public and has a public group site on Facebook under the name of Transition Humboldt.
There are over 1000 Transition initiatives around the world, responding to uncertain times with creativity, solutions and “engaged optimism.” Transition communities do a variety of activities including: creating local currencies, growing food in public spaces, localizing their economies, skill sharing and developing community energy production. It’s an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism. In a world that is awash with gloom, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of taking control of our own destinies.
