 What:         We are working together to build a healthy, sustainable                                     economic future for South Bend and the surrounding area:

Together we face the challenges posed by climate change and rising energy costs. Together we can create a more vibrant and resilient local community!

What is the Transition Movement?

The Transition Movement is a globally evolving framework that works for a future in which:

  • our local economy is valued and its vast resources utilized;
  • lower energy use is seen as a benefit;
  • and, the building of resilience will become the cornerstone of a new economy.

Transition focuses on retooling, re-skilling, and building strong, local community relationships so that we can produce and consume as locally as possible.

The Transition Gathering in January will provide the opportunity for participants to build and expand networks of people to work on topics such as:

  • Local food production, distribution and preservation skills
  • Local transportation
  • Local job creation
  • Local energy production
  • Engaging local government and institutions around sustainability issues
  • Sustainability education integrated across family and school environments
  • Strengthening community relationships

Through the Transition approach, our local community can claim its own power to flourish socially, economically, and ecologically!
