The Transition Old Sixth Ward Initiating Group endeavors to spark an active Transition Movement in the Old Sixth Ward of Houston, Texas. The Transition Movement is an optimistic and energetic response to the dual challenges of climate change and peak oil at the local level. It supports the transition from oil dependency to local resilience by equipping communities with creative adaptations in areas... such as food, energy, health, education, spirit and economy to generate a road map towards sustainable living. Transition takes action by:
- Raising awareness of peak oil and climate change and related issues.
- Building resilience across a wide range of areas and scales, and doing all we can to ensure general environmental resilience.
- Providing access to good information in ways which are playful, articulate, accessible and engaging, and which will enable people to feel enthused and empowered rather than powerless.
- Empowering communities with tools to re-localize its resources and re-skill its members.See More Mission The job of the Initiating Group is primarily to raise awareness about the above issues, and recruit our passionate neighbors to form working groups to implement our plan for the bright future of the Old Sixth Ward.
