Voluntary Simplicity, followed by a party

Transition Brockville / 11 April 2017

A vacation from our high-tech, high-pressure lives is always welcome. But what if we could make that freedom and contentment with life permanent, instead of returning to the rat race after a one- or two-week escape?

An alternative way of living, called Voluntary Simplicity – or sometimes the Simpler Way – will be discussed at the next Transition Brockville presentation on Sunday, April 23, 2 p.m., at the Brockville Public Library.

Chris Stesky, a member of the Transition Brockville steering committee, will introduce the concept, offer some insights from her experience, and invite the audience to share stories from their own journey toward a simpler life.

Following the discussion, everyone is invited to a celebrate Transition Brockville’s 10th anniversary. There will be a look back at the group’s history, appreciation of those who have contributed over the years, and a delicious cake and treats.

New TB banner

Transition Brockville / 10 November 2015

Banner_sThanks to a generous grant this year from the Brockville and Area Community Foundation, Transition Brockville has recently acquired a 4′ banner presenting our new logo and tagline. With this banner, our new 3-pane display board and 3 folding tables, we expect to be more recognizable at the community events we participate in.

The Transition Framework

The Transition Towns movement aims toward veering away from excessive consumption – to deal with the conjoined problems of peak oil and climate change – but also in the belief that we may create an essentially more contented society, through building strong and resilient local communities. We will get to know our neighbours better, because we shall all need one another in the time to come.
