Missoulian Features Missoula Time Bank

Missoulian features Missoula Time Bank – 7/26/14 “The dilemma is common: You have a set of specific skills like gardening and sewing, but you are unskilled in many other areas, like carpentry and writing, and you don’t have the money to hire someone every time you need an odd job completed.  Wouldn’t it be nice […]

Transition Town Missoula was born on many fronts. Foremost, the people of Missoula have already created a vibrant city exemplifying many of the essential elements needed for transition. This foundation has inspired several to engage with the concept of the Transition Towns Initiative.

Transition Town Missoula.org is a timely initiative in the collective sustainability field that directly addresses many of our society’s most pressing environmental and social issues. The transitionmisssoula.org initiative will help to transform and advance the current dialogue confronting climate change, economic instability, erosion of communities, loss of biodiversity, domestic air and water pollution, and ameliorate increasing strains on limited natural resources that are commonly taken for granted as renewable and ever-affordable. In Missoula MT, we are not alone in our plight to transition away from our reliance on oil and fossil fuels. In the transition movement, there are currently 115 officially endorsed transition communities and cities in the United States, and 424 globally, who believe if we wait for governments to take action it will be too little too late. If we rely solely on intrepid and dedicated individuals, it will be too little. The transition initiative believes integrated community-scale organizations provide the most promising means to achieve meaningful and sustainable change.

As our site and resources develop we seek to provide useful information about buying, supporting, and participating in local food initiatives. Inherent in the process of developing a healthy food system in Missoula […]

  • Economy

    In transition, we seek to understand how issues are framed within the greater economy. In order for Missoula to become a more resilient community against outside shocks such as energy insecurity or economic uncertainty, we believe our community should focus on developing and supporting a more localized infrastructure for the production and distribution of goods […]

  • Energy

    What would it take to shift our community away from our dependence on oil? Peak oil theory states: that any finite resource, (including oil), will have a beginning, middle, and an end of production, and at some point it will reach a level of maximum output as seen in the graph to the left. Oil […]
