"Transition Venice is part of the worldwide grassroots Transition movement to make our communities more food and energy resilient. You should join if you want to know what you can do to make your life less vulnerable to peak oil and if you are concerned about climate change. We have members who have ran an organic farm, designed energy efficient buildings, built their own solar hot water and electric systems and built electric bicycles and home gardens. We want to make the transition to a better way of life together."
