Transition Berkeley brings neighbors and community members together to build a more equitable, regenerative, self-reliant future for Berkeley. We envision a strong, diverse local economy, with greatly reduced dependence on fossil fuels, and a healthy, cooperative, rewarding community life.
The Initiating Team is a small but enthusiastic group of people interested in promoting and implementing the Transition concepts throughout Berkeley neighborhoods. This group is where the juice happens!
Our Initiating Team meets once a month to plan events and conduct outreach. If you are interested in joining the Initiating Committee please contact us.
