Cornwall and area
Located in Eastern Ontario, Canada, Transition Cornwall+ is a community group created to build resilience and sustainability in Cornwall and the surrounding rural area of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry (the + in our name,) in preparation for the combined challenges of peak oil, climate change and global economic instability.
We believe that with thoughtful and deliberate planning, the transition to life without cheap fuel will be far gentler, and our community can become an even more fulfilling, socially connected, sustainable and self-reliant place to live. But we have to act together, and we have to act now.
Transition Cornwall+ aims to inspire everyone in the Cornwall area to work together to increase our community’s capacity to thrive in the face of peak oil, climate change and global economic instability. We intend to:
-raise awareness about these upcoming challenges
-work with people and groups already active with these issues
-lead a dynamic community process that unleashes the collective genius of our citizens for imagining and planning for a better future
-create and implement a long-term plan to systematically reduce fossil fuel dependency in the Cornwall area.
