The transition town movement is focused on making communities more resilient. Communities that are environmentally, economically and socially sustainable have smaller carbon footprints and are better able to deal with the challenges of peak oil and climate change.
We have started a Transition Howard County (THC) initiative and are looking at all aspects of sustainability including economics, food, water, energy, transportation, and more. If you are interested in getting involved, we are having monthly meetings at private homes in Ellicott City and Columbia.
Upcoming events are listed on the new THC web site at www.transitionhoco.org.

Sustainability and Transition Towns
Study on global governance and sustainability
Major reforms of global environmental governance are needed to avoid dangerous changes in the Earth system, according to
a group of social scientists and researchers from around the world. The scientists argued in the March 16 edition of the journal Science
that the time is now for a "constitutional moment" in world politics. Their conclusions are summarized in Science Daily.
