Door County Library and Sustain Door to Conduct Transition Initiative Study

Sustain Door and the Door County Library will collaborate on a free public study of the Transition Initiative, a movement taking place in hundreds of communities around the world in response to the dual challenges of Peak Oil and climate change, and the resulting economic strains. The program will take place in two locations – the Sturgeon Bay Library and the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Library. Hosts at both sites will begin the study by screening the film, In Transition 1.0. During the six weeks following the film, participants will meet to study how the Transition Initiative might be applied to communities in Door County. In Transition Towns, citizens work together in their neighborhoods sourcing food and goods locally.

The Sister Bay Library will show the film Tuesday, April 12 at 1:30 pm. Subsequent meetings will take place every Tuesday from 1:30 – 3 pm. Register with Renny Lea by calling 920.868.9698 or emailing [email protected].

The Sturgeon Bay Library will show the film on Monday, April 11 at 4:30 pm. Subsequent meetings will take place every Monday from 4:30 – 6 pm. Register with Laura Kayacan by calling 920.743.6578 or emailing [email protected].

Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of The Transition Handbook: From Oil Dependence to Local Resilience by Rob Hopkins. There are several copies of the book available for loan in the library’s Green Resources collection. There will also be a copy at each of the two branches’ reference desks for use in the library. Some local booksellers carry the title.
