PLEASE – Take time to watch and listen to
this speech from Bill McKibben
given at Power Shift 2011
Our mission is to be a catalyst in making the transition from oil dependency to the development of resilient communities.
The transition process aims at re-localization — the development of local self-reliance primarily with food, energy, and transportation. A declining energy supply and climate instability presents us with great opportunities and challenges. By thinking and working together we can create resilient communities that consume much less carbon energy and yet produce happier, more fulfilling places for all of us.
Re-localization: Developing local self-reliance in meeting basic human needs.
- Community Regeneration: Reestablishing local interdependence and reclaiming power in our neighborhoods, communities and workplaces.
- Sustainability: Meeting our needs without degrading the ecosystem for future generations.
- Equity: Meeting basic needs for all.
