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.

Consider investing in community solar power 

Yes, you can invest even without subscribing as an electricity customer.  Two options, both with offerings closing this winter:

Follow links for details.  Fully inform yourself before investing.

To understand your ecosystem, get to know your watershed 

During these snowmelt seasons,  we see the flow of water around us.  Our corner of St. Paul straddles three local watersheds that feed into the Mississippi. Read Ranae Hanson's article "What Does Your Watershed Want?"  in the March Park Bugle, then explore the resources linked here.

We need a newsletter editor. Could it be you? 

If you see the world through green-tinted glasses, perhaps we should meet. Does this sound like you?

  • You believe in a community approach to the challenge of climate change— and you want to keep learning

  • You identify with the St. Anthony Park neighborhood 

  • You want to join the inspiring team of volunteers who make up Transition Town - All St. Anthony Park


St. Paul City Council approves two climate-friendly measures 

A city Climate Action and Resilience Plan was approved in a St. Paul City Council vote in December, as was a resolution holding Xcel Energy more accountable for a clean-energy transition and calling foul on its proposed new fracked-gas plant. Learn more in Tim Wulling's "Understanding St. Paul's Climate Action Plan" in the February Park Bugle.  

The current volunteer editor of the monthly e-newsletter Transition Times ASAP is stepping down. If a new one steps up, it can continue; if not, we'll just rely on our Facebook page for event listings and FB group  for discussions. Our outgoing editor can help the new person get started. New ideas welcome! No pay, just the rewards of empowering others to act for climate. Send an email to  Communications@TransitionASAP.org.
