The mission of Transition Sebastopol is to create a positive vision of the future by cultivating community resilience in response to the potential challenges of resource depletion, climate change, and economic instability.

About our Working Groups & the TS Working Group Council

Transition Sebastopol is a grass roots; all volunteer movement that is comprised of working groups. The working groups are formed to address a particular aspect of our community needs and further the greater agenda of helping us all become more resilient and sustainable.

Cheerful Disclaimer

Just in case you were under the impression that Transition is a process defined by people who have all the answers, you need to be aware of a key fact.
We truly don't know if this will work. Transition is a social experiment on a massive scale.
What we are convinced of is this:
* if we wait for the governments, it'll be too little, too late
* if we act as individuals, it'll be too little
* but if we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time.
Everything that you read on the transition town http://transitiontowns.org site is the result of real work undertaken in the real world with community engagement at its heart. There's not an ivory tower in sight, no professors in musty oak-panelled studies churning out erudite papers, no slavish adherence to a model carved in stone.
This site, just like the transition model, is brought to you by people who are actively engaged in transition in a community. People who are learning by doing - and learning all the time. People who understand that we can't sit back and wait for someone else to do the work. People like you, perhaps...
