Event Description

How do we prepare for a transition to the new economy in Jamaica Plain? Join us for a presentation about the Transition Town movement that is sweeping the U.K and the U.S. Learn what other communities are doing to create local-scale, ecologically-oriented development models to adapt to our changing environment and economy.

About Tina Clark:
Tina Clark has been an advocate, educator, consultant, and director of nonprofit programs since 1985. She was recently a consultant with Bill McKibben’s global initiative and the Sustainability Institute. She has been providing professional training and support for community leaders and campaigns for over 20 years. Tina lives in a below-zero energy, passive solar-heated, Platiunm LEED, low-toxic “Power House” that she helped design and build. In 2009 the home won the Massachusetts utility company-sponsored competition, the Zero Energy Challenge, and in 2010 won the NESEA award for zero energy buildings. The house is free of all fossil fuels and wood-burning, and generated 2.5 times more energy than needed in 2009.
