Transition initiatives are a worldwide movement to relocalize economies and support communities in transitioning away from fossil fuel dependence.

Transition Town Comox Valley has been meeting for a year and has generated a number of exciting ideas and projects aimed at preparing our community for a lower-carbon future.

Over the next few months local speakers will be giving presentations on ways they’re incorporating the principles of Transition into their work and into their day-to-day lives. There will also be ongoing updates on projects that have been initiated by the group, and opportunities for newcomers to participate in areas that interest them.

At the first meeting of this new season, well-known Comox architect Thomas Dishlevoy will give a presentation on what the Comox Valley could look like if it were to embrace strong principles of sustainability in land use planning, servicing and building development.

The meeting will be on Sept. 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the lower Native Sons Hall at 360 Cliffe Ave. in Courtenay.

Everyone is welcome to come out to hear this inspiring talk and to reconnect with the Transition Town Comox Valley community. Admission is by donation.
