Thankfully, Oregon PeaceWorks is helping to promote a new crack at this vital idea under the name Transition Town Salem. They're planning an organizing meeting for February 13 at the PeaceWorks office, second floor. Contact PeaceWorks for details.
Transition Towns are communities working to build resilience in response to peak oil, climate change, and economic instability. OPW seeks to work with environmentalists, economists, city planners, government representatives and members of the public to develop both a plan and hands-on projects that will demonstrate the elements of resilience and sustainability to the Salem, OR community. We are looking for like-minded individuals, especially those with relevant expertise, in developing this program. We also seek to network with as many existing sustainability projects in the Mid-Willamette Valley as possible.
