What do we want?
Our community works together to live sustainably with less reliance on fossil fuels and other limited resources. Wasting less and consuming with care, we grow more of our own food and support local producers. Using energy more efficiently we generate more of our energy needs within Kingston. Caring for the land we protect the natural system that supports us. Our community action will reduce our carbon emissions and dependence on finite resources. Our local community and real economy will be stronger as we improve our well being and resilience. See our new flier here.
How do we get there?
Using the commitment, creativity and energy from within our community we take steps to change the community and environment we live in. “Transition” is the journey through the changes we need to make locally, nationally and internationally to respond to the challenges of peak oil and climate change and move towards a low-carbon, healthier, happier future.
Transition Town Kingston is part of a global Transition movement, an ongoing social experiment in which communities learn from each other and work towards a better future for ourselves, future generations and our planet. We don’t have all the answers, but we won’t shirk the questions.
We are also part of the national Transition Network, and have joined The Climate Coalition, while locally we are members of Kingston Environment Forum and Kingston Environment Centre.
