Skilling up for Transition
Wondering what the future will look like - with an uncertain economic climate, volatile fossil fuel prices, and a deep dependence on oil that is getting more difficult and expensive?
Transition OKC believes that we can work together to become less dependent on imports of food and oil while building communities less vulnerable to downturns in the economy. Working together, we can build a strong local economy that keeps money local and re-circulating around our city. Working together, we can reconnect our neighborhoods, communities and families to help each other through good times and bad.
What does Transition OKC do?
