And so it goes.

21 June 2021

Transition Brockville (TB) was organized by concerned citizens of Brockville and area in March 2007. Originally known as the Brockville Climate Action Group, it changed its name to Transition Brockville in October 2011. It was wound down during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020-21.

At the time the pandemic started, the TB Steering Committee was already struggling with lack of support. Although they no longer wish to take the lead on this issue locally, they believe a group of this sort is vital to the community’s resilience in a climate changing world. Others are welcome to step up and revive TB or to form a different group. For further info, please contact an administrator of TB’s Facebook group.

Bringing community to the table in climate adaptation

Resilience / Leslie MacKenzie / 28 January 2021

Climate preparedness and adaptation work is excellent for Transition groups to do for several reasons:

  • Transition’s practical, solution-oriented approach makes it easier for people to take in difficult climate change information. We weren’t just telling people problems; we were giving them solutions.
  • Transition isn’t out for a quick win. Our group was there for years, offering different ways to engage so people had multiple opportunities to learn.
  • Transition doesn’t just give people information; it gives them a community where they can continue to talk to others. We’re building relationship capital.

The Brockville Climate Action Group (BCAG), as it was called then, arose from that first well-attended meeting. The next month MP Gord Brown unveiled the group’s new website, and Mayor David Henderson congratulated the group’s initiative and hoped the City could use the group “as a resource in our efforts to do what we can for our environment.”

Building community resilience: before, during & after COVID-19

Transition US / Don Hall / 30 March 2020

Due to accelerating impacts from climate change, as well as ongoing economic and political instability around the world, these crises will continue to periodically crash up against our shores, more and more frequently in coming decades, threatening to significantly erode our capacity to respond. In order to successfully counter this reality, those of us who are called to leadership will need to learn how to respond skillfully during these periodic crises and build local community resilience long-term.

The Transition Framework

Transition Towns are in the forefront of those preparing for the changes ahead. Transitioners understand that the climate-changed future is hugely unpredictable and unstable. They feel keenly the dilemma of our daily life dependence on a dominant economic system that is threatening that very life with its insistence on unending material consumption and use of fossil fuels.
