About Us

Transition PDX is part of a rapidly-spreading global movement spurred on by the establishment of Transition Town Totnes. The What is Transition link on that town’s website is an excellent place to get acquainted with the movement. Of course, doing Transition in a large city like Portland is bound to call for a much different approach than that used in small towns like Totnes, and that is one of our ongoing challenges.

Currently Transition PDX is operating as a horizontal network of individuals rather than a vertical, top-down organization. Stay tuned to learn about neighborhood groups, initiatives or projects as they happen.
