Door County UUF Screens “Transition Towns”

As a part of Movies that Matter, Transition Towns will be screened on Tuesday, April 19 at 4:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County in Ephraim.

Transition Towns is a term for environmental and social movements “founded, in part, upon the principles of permaculture,” as described by Bill Mollison in Permaculture, a Designers Manual, published in 1988. The aim of this community project is to equip communities for the dual challenges of climate change and peak oil. The Transition Towns movement is an example of socioeconomic localization of goods, economy and community.

A key concept within transition is the idea of a community designed and implemented plan to proactively transition away from fossil fuels. The number of communities involved in the project is increasing with many localities in the process of becoming “official” transition towns.

Movies That Matter are presented each month by the Social Responsibility Committee of the UU Fellowship. This series of thought-provoking films is free and open to the public with screenings on the third Tuesday each month. After each film, audience members often reconvene at a local eatery to continue their post-screening discussion.

The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Highway 42 in Ephraim. For information call 920.854.7559 or visit
