Drop in and visit us at Shed 7D (50 Clyde Street, Hamilton North). So what is Transition Newcastle Inc all about? Basically were a local group committed to fostering sustainable and resilient communities. Were not about reinventing the wheel: there are already many people in our communities doing great work to engage our communities in more sustainable ways of living. Often these groups are under-resourced and while we cant offer money, we can help promote projects, encourage networking, and bring together like-minded people to bolster existing projects and create new ones.
Transition, sustainability and resilience… Transition Newcastle is based on The Transition Network model, which is a global, grassroots phenomenon driven by the twin challenges of climate change and peak oil. Instead of focusing on what we dont want, the key to the Transition Network model is the focus of creating positive visions and projects to create a truly sustainable and resilient society a society which satisfies the needs of the present generation without compromising the capacity of future generations, a resilient society that can function and develop despite any challenged to the system it relies upon. For an inspirational and very good introduction and overview of the Transition model, see the Transition Network webpage or watch the In Transition 2.0 movie .
