(One of the first things to do is fill out the questions on your profile page. Click 'Settings' at the right to begin.)
Transition Ottawa is an informal place where those interested in a more sustainable, more self-reliant way of living, can gather to exchange ideas, share resources, learn from what others are doing, become inspired, encourage each other, and come together as part of the larger 'Transition' network. It is a grand and ambitious social experiment.
Our About section will help orient you and provide basic information about this network. Here you will find:
Resources is where you'll find loads of resources—in particular,
