Recognizing the Transition model as the most hopeful approach to confronting the multiple challenges our world faces, leaders of the Greater Boston Peak Oil/Climate Change Meetup chose to ally with Transition Massachusetts. This group intends to foster and nurture Transition initiatives and related efforts in communities around the Boston Area. We believe that encouraging more resilience, connectedness and cooperation in our local communities, and promoting social equity and justice alongside environmental sustainability, can bring about healthier and more fulfilling lives for all.
We will continue to meet regularly, sometimes for general discussion/planning meetings, sometimes in a community in the Boston Area where local activists feel ready to start a Transition initiative. All meetings will be posted in the Events area on this Transition Massachusetts site, and members of this group will receive an email notification. Please use the RSVP feature of the Events area to indicate your intentions.
