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.  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 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, youth, students, and seniors; faith groups, people of all ethnicities... all are needed. (See a map of our area of St. Paul, Minnesota.)
