Transition Lehigh Valley
Jan 04, 2012 08:40PM
Transitions Lehigh Valley (TLV), now an official Transition Initiative, has scheduled a series of informative meetings at 7 p.m. on consecutive second Fridays beginning January 13 through March 9 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Lehigh Valley, located in Bethlehem.
This is the year for people, communities and organizations of the Lehigh Valley to recognize that important, life-altering changes are needed to cope with what author James Howard Kunstler calls “converging catastrophes of the 21st century.” The meetings will focus on dialoguing about the intertwined economic, environmental, and basic needs challenges we are facing and how to move forward in creating resilient communities.
The need to act is becoming more urgent, the readiness to act is there, and there now is a strategy for building local resilience that provides startup models for how communities can commit to sustainable living practices and align in pursuit of a sustainable future, according to members of TLV.
Transitions Lehigh Valley became the 97th official Transition Initiative in the U.S. on September 21. An effort of the Alliance for Sustainable Communities-Lehigh Valley, it was formed to bring the Transition Movement to the Lehigh Valley.
