Introducing Transition Santa Rosa
Climate change and rising fossil fuel costs affect everyone, so how can we best prepare to minimize their impacts? Transition Santa Rosa is out to find their city’s answers to that question.
Transition initiatives are not new to Sonoma County; the national base for the movement relocated to Sebastopol in 2009, and both that town and Cotati have had their own active Transition Town groups for several years. But scaling those efforts up to a city the size of Santa Rosa is a bigger undertaking, says Transition Santa Rosa co-founder John DuVall, so they are modeling their efforts on those already happening in some other larger municipalities.
