Welcome!

Transition Cornwall+ is a community group created to help build resilience and sustainability in Cornwall and the surrounding rural area (the + in our name,) in preparation for the combined challenges of peak oil, climate change, and global economic instability.  Read more…

Background

Local Resources

Relocalization is a strategy to create resilient, sustainable communities by moving the production of food, energy, and essential goods closer to those who will consume them, and by developing local governance, culture, and currency.

The goals are multiple: an increase in food and energy security; empowerment by local decision-making and participatory democracy; better management of the bioregion’s ecosystems; reduction in consumption and waste; a focus on the quality of relationships; and an improvement in social equity.

Relocalization is our best strategy in response to energy depletion, climate change, economic uncertainties, corporatism, and a global system that is unresponsive to local needs. For our list of local resources, click here.

Transition Cornwall + Lending Library

We now have a collection of books and DVDs on Transition Towns, peak oil, climate change, economic solutions, permaculture, and other related issues. These resources are available to residents of Cornwall and area to borrow at no charge.

We encourage you to have movie nights with friends and family to watch the borrowed DVD together. If you need help leading a discussion about a film, please let us know, and one of us may be able to join your group to help answer questions. For our list, click here.
