WHAT IS TRANSITION KERRY?
Transition Kerry is part of a local, national & international initiative. We are working together to get our local communities to think about making themselves more resilient, in response to three major things that are happening in our world:
CLIMATE CHANGE, PEAK OIL & ECONOMIC DECLINE.
We are about creating awareness and networks to ensure that local sustainability is at the core of all actions & policies made at local, national & international levels.
Our objective is to accelerate change through inspiring, encouraging, supporting, networking and training our communities as they consider and then implement their vision for the future they want to live in.
Like the rest of Ireland. Kerry, Tralee its other towns villages and communities are dependent on sources outside of the country for most of our food, fuel, energy, a lot of our jobs, and most of our “stuff”.
Transition Kerry believes we need to become a more self-reliant and sustainable community.
The toughest challenges facing Kerry, our communities and humanity itself are Climate Change, Peak Oil, Food Security and Economic decline.
Economic Decline and Climate Change is well documented.
However Peak Oil, Food Security, Environmental & Social decline remains under the radar for most people.
