Building a world of
resilient communities.

MAIN LIST

 

Transition yourself


The climate has gone rogue, energy prices are threatening, and the economy sucks. You know the elections aren't going to make it better. Why wait for government? You can protect your community and yourself by helping your town withstand the shocks.

This program is about the Transition Town Movement and local power.

We begin with a half of an hour-long dialog with Ruah Swennerfelt and Steve Chase on the Transition Town movement in New England. It's a rebroadcast of "Sprouts", radio production by independent community media.

In our second half hour, our guest is Greg Pahl, author of the new book "Power from the People, How to Organize, Finance, and Launch Local Energy Projects."
