Transition Keene Becomes US' 56th Official Transition Initiative (and New Hampshire's first)
Transition Initiatives start when a small group of motivated individuals within a community come together with a shared concern: how can the community respond to the challenges and opportunities of peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis?

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.”
