As the 151st U.S. Initiative, Transition Lopez Island is committed to enlivening a vision of a resilient, sustainable community for our island.
In uncertain times, resilience is the capacity to bounce back and thrive. Our group is finding ways to harness our island-grown community activism and collective wisdom to create a new paradigm around issues of local economy, labor share, energy use, movement of goods and people, and food and water security that sustains life for us all.
As part of a worldwide movement of community-scale initiatives, Transition Lopez Island also partners locally with like-minded groups, including the Lopez Community Land Trust, Islands Energy, Lopez Locavores, Lopez Community Trails Network, Friends of the San Juans, and Islands Climate Resilience.
We are currently organized into seven working groups or guilds:
- Energy/Climate Change
- Local Finance
- Food and Water Security
- Asset Mapping
We invite you to join us in creating a bold future for our island that promotes health, creativity, and equality for everyone, in balance with nature.
