We are a group of people from Paso Robles, Atascadero and Templeton that are concerned about climate change, peak oil, and growing economic instabilities. We support the increased adoption of energy efficiency, renewable energy, a local organic food economy, smart growth, more efficient modes of transportation and other local strategies that enhance our local economy and create a more low-energy, more-localized,and more enriching future.
We would like to increase public, business and local government awareness, discussion and collaborative action to address these concerns and foster adoption of these strategies.
We are in the early stages of learning about the Transition Initiative process pioneered by Rob Hopkins in the UK which is now spreading to the US, California and San Luis Obispo County. We encourage and will support the formation of Steering Groups in various towns and communities in the North County where we live. We intend to participate in awareness raising and other Transition Initiative conversations as they take shape in the coming weeks and months.
