Transition Town-ASAP is a group of St. Anthony Park residents who formed in 2008 to help mitigate climate change and adapt to its effects. The group has three main goals:
• to reduce our carbon footprint, as individuals and as a neighborhood
• to better prepare for severe weather and possible economic instability
• to build our community’s resilience— and have fun while doing it
