Time is running out to reverse the devastating effects of climate change. At the same time, our addiction to fossil fuel is becoming increasingly costly to satisfy as supply limitations manifest. We must plan for more sustainable Toronto communities - NOW!
Citizens of Toronto can act as a community to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. More importantly, we can have fun and eat cake doing it.
Transition Toronto's Energy Descent Action Theatre is a theatre-based community event where we learn a little, play a little, and in the process the audience makes Toronto's Energy Descent Action Plan. Then we eat cake.
Toronto's Energy Descent Action Plan will be a long-term vision and action plan for a smooth ride down the fossil fuel curve, rather than a drop off the cliff at the end of cheap energy. Climate change and peak oil are difficult predicaments, but with careful planning we can maintain and even improve our standard of living and social equity as we move into the post-carbon age. This is a historical moment in which we either try to cling to an increasingly unfeasible way of life, or we make a plan to live within our energy means and find new ways to be true communities.
There is no one and no group more qualified than the residents of Toronto communities to make Toronto's Energy Descent Action Plan. There's also no better way to unlock the collective genius of our communities than a fun, creative time at the theatre.
Join us October 21st and make history by developing the first mega-city scale Energy Descent Action Plan.
