Sustainable OKC hosting Transition Town workshop

Transition Town OKC (TTOKC) started in January 2009 with two basic questions: 1) How can communities respond to the intertwining challenges of more expensive energy, resource depletion, a changing climate, and economic instability? And, 2) How can we create more sustainable and resilient ways of life even while facing financial uncertainty?

A project of fellow OSN chapter Sustainable OKC, TTOKC decided to explore answers to these two challenging questions using the Transition model outlined by Rob Hopkins in the book, “The Transition Handbook: From Oil Dependency to Local Resilience,” published in 2008. The book has inspired an international movement that’s grown exponentially over the last two years, providing a framework for communities to organize and implement their own energy transition plans. There are now 278 Transition Initiatives throughout the world and 60 official Transition Initiatives in the United States.

As the 27th official Transition Initiative, Transition Town OKC is hosting a “Training for Transition (T4T) Workshop,” on Fri., April 10 and Sat., April 11. The T4T course is designed to give a detailed introduction to the most important skills necessary to set up, develop, and run a Transition project in a neighborhood, town, city, church, school, community, business or wherever people are gathered.
