Bringing neighbors together to build a more sustainable, resilient
future for 
Berkeley. We envision a strong, diverse local economy,
with a greatly reduced 
dependence on fossil fuels, 
and a cooperative, rewarding, community life.

Transition Berkeley is a volunteer-run community group. We welcome anyone and everyone's support and help! Our 2011-12 plans include:

  • Building awareness about climate change, peak oil and economic instability through movie nights and other awareness events.
  • Forming partnerships with allied organizations such as the Ecology Center, the City of Berkeley, the PLACE for Sustainable Living and the Victory Garden Foundation; we co-sponsor events and strategize how to best collaborate and help each other out.
  • Creating signature projects that that help to build a resilient community, including Crop Swaps, Neighborhood Resilience workshops and Skill Shares.
  • Reaching out to a diversity of individuals and community groups around critical topics like food security and neighborhood safety.

How we are organized: Our Initiating Team

The Initiating Team is a small but enthusiastic group of people interested in promoting and implementing the Transition concepts throughout Berkeley neighborhoods. (About Transition).

Our Initiating Team meets 1-2 times/month to plan events and conduct outreach. If you are interested in joining the Initiating Committee please contact Linda Currie.

Don't have time for meetings? There are many ways you can be involved! 

We support any and all creative ideas for events, partnerships and projects involving the idea of making Berkeley a more resilient and sustainable place to live. OR...
