"The 'In Transitions...' DVD decsribes the Transition Town movement, which is quickly becoming one of the fastest sustainability movements in the world. Transition Towns aim to raise awareness of sustainable living and build local ecological resilience in the near future.

Communities are encouraged to seek out methods for reducing energy usage as well as reducing their reliance on long supply chains that are totally dependent on fossil fuels for essential items. Food is a key area, and they often talk of "Food feet, not food miles!"

Initiatives so far have included creating community gardens to grow food; business waste exchange, which seeks to match the waste of one industry with another industry that uses this waste; and even simply repairing old items rather than throwing them away."
