Organization Overview

Transition Western Is a group of students working under the umbrella of the global transition movement to help our community transition from an economy that is dependent upon fossil fuels and accelerating consumption of finite resources to a highly localized economy that uses renewable energy and local resources at sustainable rates, encourages skill sharing and trading over purchasing, and supports all members of the community.
