Transition Towns is a grass roots/community initiative that involves
creating a resilient, truly sustainable, vibrant community of happy and healthy
people that will live in a way that will protect the environment and ultimately
enhance the quality of human lives everywhere. The movement is gaining momentum
internationally with about 1000 towns or cities worldwide (50 in New Zealand)
joining the movement. The Invercargill branch of the movement aims to support
the transition of Invercargill - and Southland - communities into a
lower-energy, lower-emissions future.
