Transition Newton, located in Newton, NJ, is the NJ chapter of the global Transition Movement founded in Ireland. Originally calledTransition Towns, it is a movement that was founded in Kinsale, Ireland and Totnes, England by environmentalist Rob Hopkins during 2005 and 2006. The aim of the project is to equip communities for the dual challenges of climate change and peak oil. The movement currently has member communities in over 34 countries worldwide. Transition Newton has added a third challenge - Sustainability - to their goals. They meet the third Thursday of each month, with additional workshops and informational seminars sprinkled throughout the calendar. If you are interested in building community with like-minded, forward-thinking individuals who are concerned about the rapid climate changes, economic stability and dependence on foreign oil, be sure to check them out at http://transitionnewton.com/.
