Transition Town State College is a local non-profit organization that uses the Transition Towns model to assess energy needs and resources. We work to develop practices, policies and technologies that can meet those needs with a minimal impact on the environment while maintaining, or improving, our quality of life. Through education, activities and dialogue TTSC works to help people and organizations find ways to reduce their energy usage and costs, develop ways of living that reduces our carbon footprint, and support re-localization efforts.
Transition Towns is a grassroots response. It requires no funding or red tape. It thrives on the collective and highly creative intelligence of the community. It took a considerable genius to get us where we are and that same ingenuity will get us to a new way of living. That way of life is not one of sacrifice and denial but achieving a human scale of life in which we relearn to relate to each other, to celebrate the cycles of the Earth, to achieve greater local self-sufficiency, as well as restore dignity and pride in the life of our community.
Transition Towns State College (TTSC) is the local community organization working to develop our capacity to deal with the challenges of environmental, economic, and related energy issues that we believe will increasingly occupy our attention and resources. Our group is part of a loosely affiliated worldwide network, founded several years ago, of over 400 official Transition Towns in 34 countries with over 100 in the US including a few in Pennsylvania.
