February 24: Transition Towns—the Future is Now!

What does it mean to “live the good life” when our human footprint is doing so 
much damage to the earth?
 How can we act more sustainably while preserving, even enhancing, the 
character and beauty of our neighbor- hoods?
One answer that has grabbed the attention of people around the world is 
Transition Towns, a global movement that 
started in England in 2006, growing to over 1100 initiatives in more than 43 
countries in 2013. These communities are 
empowered by a fierce resolve to: lower their greenhouse gas footprint; build 
resilience against climate change; and reduce 
energy and economic uncertainty. How? With a strong local entrepreneurial 
economy and resourceful residents committed 
to a community that nurtures the well-being of all.

Intrigued by the idea of transitioning to a sustainable community? We warmly 
invite you to attend Transition Towns—the Future is Now! 
on Monday, February 24, featuring John Freise co-founder of Corcoran GROWS 
(Grass Roots Opens Ways of Sustainability) and a sought 
after TT speaker and Michael Russelle, an environmental scientist and key 
figure in the emerging St. Anthony Park Transition Town. 
7-8:30 pm. Grace Trinity Community Church, 1430 West 28th St. Minneapolis 55408 
(next to Isles Bun & Coffee Shop). 
Register with Monica Smith by Feb. 19 at nrp [at] Sponsored by 
the East Isles Green Team. 

Help us spread the word! Many thanks, Betsy Allis
