Transition Towns (Pratt)
Transition Towns are a vibrant, citizen movement taking root in communities across the world. It’s neighbors working together to reduce their carbon footprint while increasing household preparedness and community resilience in the face of a changing climate, an unstable economy and a shifting energy landscape. Learn how you can join in or start a group in your own community. Presenter Leslie MacKenzie is a co-founder of Transition Longfellow and Transition Twin Cities, a hub for six local Transition groups in the Twin Cities.
Leslie MacKenzie is a co-founder and steering committee member of Transition Longfellow, which has been operating in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis since 2011.
