We’re catalysts, advocates and collaborators,
Who work with generous amounts of hopeful, positive action and networking,
A dash of social experiment,
And healthy doses of fun.
Transition OKC is part of the international Transition movement and was founded in 2009 by a small group of community volunteers concerned about the challenges facing humanity such as economic and energy volatility, and climate change. We are a program of Green Connections, our partner and sponsor.
Since its founding, Transition OKC has catalyzed resilience, sustainability and health in Oklahoma City by organizing or working collaboratively at the grassroots level with a wide range of organizations, businesses and people. We’ve hosted, sponsored or collaborated on more than 100 workshops, events and presentations, including:
Fruit tree plantings
Local food networking events
Local food chef’s challenge
Oklahoma’s first full-length Permaculture Design Course
Moving Planet, an event advocating for better health and sustainability for the state of Oklahoma
Permablitzes and gardening workshops
