A positive, local response

to climate change

Neighbors addressing climate change

Transition Town — All St. Anthony Park

Smaller Footprint, Stronger Community

We’re neighbors linking up to live responsibly on the Earth.  We bring diverse skills— what we accomplish reflects who shows up. Our ideas are as many as the challenges we all face. But they may not yet include yours. 

Come, think, work, and celebrate with us!  


Our purpose is to raise our neighborhood's understanding of climate change and the limits of fossil fuels, and to foster a positive, community-wide transition to more sustainable ways of life... ASAP.  ASAP reminds us that climate change calls for our best efforts, right now. All Saint Anthony Park means South and North; renters and homeowners; newcomers and long-timers; businesses and nonprofits, students and seniors; faith groups, youth groups... all are needed.

Join us for one or both of these nonsectarian presentations by Anne Murphy, co-hosted with the Earthwise team at St. Paul's United Church of Christ. 

Nov. 15, Beginning with the end:  We'll explore the surprisingly wide range of choices open to us as we consider our own end-of-life. What's important to us? How can we die in a way that's congruent with our values and spiritual needs?  (Details on Facebook.)
