TPDX Mission

Transition PDX is committed to building resilient communities that are prepared to embrace a lower energy future with cooperation and creativity.

Transition PDX supports Portland’s transition to a more sustainable future by:

  • raising awareness about the challenges of declining oil reserves, the effects of global warming/climate change, economic uncertainty, and how communities can prepare
  • organizing neighborhoods to share resources, build resilient community, and transition to a lower carbon way of life
  • fostering connections among individuals, groups and institutions interested in resilience
  • working with local governments to plan for a more sustainable future
  • supporting each other in coming to grips with the challenges we face, envisioning a better future, and breaking addictions to energy-intensive lifestyles
