Mission: Transition Olympia connects and strengthens our network of individuals and groups that focus on building local resilience. We support self-reliance and an abundant, vital community that can adapt to changes in food, energy, economic, and social systems.
We join those in the Olympia, Washington area who are working to coordinate and strengthen community action in response to global Climate Change, Peak Oil, and Economic Contraction. These three issues are global in their scope and scale, and are inextricably linked. Obviously, any one person or any one small community could not hope to change or solve these problems. Ironically, the answer to the question "How do we thrive in a world with an altered climate and weather pattern, an increasingly expensive and diminishing supply of fossil fuel, and a volatile economy and the loss of familiar jobs and patterns of consumption?" The answer is almost certainly based on small, site specific, community-based solutions.
