While working with the Sustainability Guild International of Dorchester, a coworker revealed that she happened to contribute to the material published in the book that I was reading at the time. The manual, The Transition Companion: Making Your Community More Resilient in Uncertain Times, featured the Transition Network. As stated in a previous post, “transition with a little t”, the network connects over a thousand communities in industrialized nations around the world that have taken on environmentally sustainable projects involving food, transport, energy, education, housing, waste, and the arts. These small-scale responses to global climate change transition the community away from the high levels of energy consumption, high carbon emissions, and detrimental environmental impacts that have resulted from consumer culture.
