A Vibrant Low Energy Future for Helston and District

What is the Transition Process?

A Transition Initiative is a community working together to look Peak OIl and Climate Change squarely in the eye and address the BIG question:
"for all those aspects of life that this community needs in order to sustain itself and thrive, how do we significantly increase resilience (to mitigate the effects of Peqak OIl) and drastically reduce carbon emissions (to mitigate the effects of Climate Change)?"
The resulting co-ordinated range of projects across all these areas of life leads to a collectivley designed energy descent pathway.
The community also recognises two crucial points:
  • that we used immense amounts of creativity, ingenuity and adaptability on the way up the energy upslope, and that there's no reason for us not to the same on the downslope
  • if we collectivley plan and act early enough there's every liklihood that we can create a way of living that's significantly more connected, more vibrantand more in touch with our environment than the oil-addicted treadmill that we find ourselves on today
