Transition Network has created a way to engage people en masse to reduce oil dependency in a way which is solutions-based and action-oriented. A Transition Initiative is a community working together to assess what it needs to achieve resilience, as well as what it can do to drastically reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the economic and environmental repercussions of reaching the peak in available oil supply.

BurrenLife

Over many millennia, Ireland has evolved as a farmed landscape. Recent changes in farming, particularly on some of our more ‘marginal’ lands, pose significant threats to the biodiversity, culture and communities in these areas. Once lost, some of these values are irreplaceable. Building on research carried out during his PhD, Brendan Dunford began to craft a plan to protect farming and biodiversity in the Burren, creating a new paradigm for the relationship between farmers and their land, and securing a five-year grant of €2.2 million to execute his ideas in the region.

The Bet on Climate

Combat climate change is undoubtedly one of the biggest challenges of the XXI century. In this context arises in Mexico the initiative "Betting on Climate", a campaign that aims to inform and educate youth on these environmental issues and provide the tools necessary for students to become strategic players in the climate change issue and sustainable development. The campaign is based on raising awareness of the global environmental problems and fight at the local, everyday driving alternatives available to youth and schools that choose to participate in this initiative.

North Country Sustainability Center

North Country Sustainability Center, Inc. is bringing traditional knowledge of food preservation, preparation, and agriculture, along with home maintenance, sewing, and other traditional skills to people who were not able to learn from their ancestors. We are developing incubators that will allow people to develop those skills into new businesses, either as teachers, or as manufacturers. We are also creating opportunities for people to grow their own food, for farmers young and old to learn and exhibit their animals and sell their food to waiting customers.
