Transitions Lehigh Valley
Transitions Lehigh Valley is one of the collaborative organizational structures that can engage, empower, and enable people, communities, and movement organizations to take action, especially when it works synergistically with the other collaborative organizational structures.
Now an official Transition Initiative and a wannabe Local Coordinating Hub, Transitions Lehigh Valley has been formed from the efforts of the Alliance Transitions Group and figures to be a major organizing and mobilizing effort of the Alliance.

The Transition Towns / Transition Initiatives movement is one of the creative ways to cope effectively with the predicaments of peak oil, climate change, and others. Founder Rob Hopkins draws on decades of intensive experience with addiction healing, deeply curative insights from permaculture, future visions of sustainable life, re-localization of the economy, and “re-skilling” of the population to build resilient and self-reliant communities.
The Alliance has committed to working on transition efforts in the Lehigh Valley. You can learn about what we’re planning at Transitions LV. We invite you to join the Transitions Working Group and to consider participating in a transition initiative in your community! For more info, contact us.
We recommend The Transition Handbook – from oil dependency to local resilience, by Rob Hopkins. Copies can be ordered from Chelsea Green Publishing, White River Junction, Vermont. (802-295-6300)
