Feb. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- KEENE, NH: Transition US is excited to announce that Transition Keene have become the 56th official Transition Initiative in the United States and the first official Transition Initiative in New Hampshire. Transition Initiatives start when a small collection of motivated individuals within a community come together with a shared concern: how can our communities responds to the challenges and opportunities of peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis? This small team of people begins by forming an initiating group and then adopts the Transition Model with the intention of engaging a significant proportion of the people in their community to kick off a Transition Initiative.

Transition Keene’s initial contact person is Steve Chase and their Organizing Committee is comprised of a diverse set of individuals, each with deep roots in the local community. “We are excited that Transition Keene can join, and help amplify the influence of, all the great work already going on in our community. Keene, New Hampshire, is so ripe for a big jump into transition work and unleashing the creative genius of our citizens. We look forward to the challenge of moving beyond either denial or despair and instead prepare for an energy lean future that is also ecologically sustainable, socially just, spiritually fulfilling, and rooted in a resilient community spirit.”
