Transition Omaha is committed to strengthening our local community and our economy through re-localization—the process of building greater local resilience and self-reliance. We support the local community in taking action to mitigate the effects of peak oil, climate change, and economic instability by planning for energy descent and relocalization in all areas of community life. When community needs are met through locally produced food, essential goods and services, energy consumption is reduced and the local economy stabilizes. In the process of transition to a lower energy consumption life-style, opportunities exist for greater community resilience and more fulfilling social connections. Transition Omaha is part of an international grassroots movement begun in the U.K. in response to the challenges of peak oil, climate change and economic instability. The movement is nonpartisan and nonsectarian.
