Today on Your Call: What are Transition Towns?


On today’s Your Call, we will discuss the growing Transition movement. It emerged in 2005 in the UK in response to ‘peak oil’, global warming and economic instability. The concept of alternative living has since been replicated across 44 countries and thousands of towns and neighborhoods. Are transition towns the best local solution to problems like peak oil? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Maggie Fleming, co-director of Transition US

Floyd Earl Smith, writer and activist who is active with Transition Bay Area
