Transitioning away from fossil fuels to local economies should be fun, practical, and (extremely) profitable. We connect you to who's doing it that way in Pittsburgh. That means our sustainable business & grassroots scene--food, energy, super-insulative buildings, Social Entrepreneurship & more--throughtours, networking, films, speakers, classes, etc. Join us & suggest a new Meetup! Or sign up for our email list, which has full event updates semi-biweekly. Or ask us stuff! Or catch us on Facebook!
Transition Initiatives try to make communities more fun and connected while preparing them for troubled times ahead.Transition Pittsburgh draws people to businesses, nonprofits, & neighborhood initiatives already doing this.
Our aim as a Hub for local Transition Initiatives is to have an initiative in every neighborhood & town across Pittsburgh, each making their participants lives more rewarding and fun... i.e building businesses and initiatives that're trying to relocalize their economy as much as possible--with more local food, local building materials, local energy (solar, wind)--transitioning away from fossil fuel use. We also do the practical work ourselves, if we see gaps we can fill and people who'll help fill them.
