What is Transition?
|When with TTL recently, Rob Hopkins asked people "What is Transition?". Here's what they told him...|
Transition Town Lewes (TTL) is a network of Lewes people. We’re working on local solutions in response to the global problems of climate change, economic change and the end of cheap energy and other resources.
Please get in touch if you would like to meet some of the people involved in project work for TTL.
And don't forget to subscribe to the TTL monthly newsletter to keep up to date with our news and events.
Transition is about the creation of resilient communities. It's not about campaigning but designing. It's about putting in place systems that will help us to deal with the big changes that are on the way. Those changes will be in three main areas: energy, the economy and the environment.
