Quakers In Transition is an online project of the New England Yearly Meeting Earthcare Ministries Committee. Our goal is to support Friends working in the Transition Movement. Gathering strength from our faith tradition, we seek to work with our neighbors and address the challenges of peak oil, climate change, and a dysfunctional global economy with courage, creativity, and a positive vision for our communities. Are you a Quaker in Transition? Would you like to be? If so, scroll down this webpage, check out the pull down menus, and access resources, blog posts, and interactive networking tools that can help you in your Transition journey.
Got questions, ideas, announcements, or suggestions? Want to introduce yourself? If so, please contact Steve Chase or Ruah Swennerfelt. We are your Quakers In Transition website coordinators and we would love to hear from you.
