About Transition Town – All St. Anthony Park

We live in transitional times. As neighbors, we're joining hands to seek a positive, local response to climate change: actions that will both shrink our carbon footprint and strengthen our community.

With global warming and new weather patterns already a reality, we aim to help mitigate climate change and also adapt to its effects. 

 

We keep these three goals in mind, working together: 

  • to reduce our carbon footprint, as individuals and as a neighborhood

  • to prepare for severe weather and possible economic instability

  • to build our community's resilience—and have fun while doing it.

 

Along with practical action, we

seek to educate and inspire

others.  We try to think global

and act local (right: carrying 

the "shop local" message).
And we support others in

related projects, since climate

issues intertwine with many

others: social and economic

justice, environmental

stewardship, and political will. 

From our beginnings in 2008 (see our History page), we've grown into an official Transition Town neighborhood, one of several under the Transition Twin Cities umbrella. We also have ties with the national Transition US: in fact, we helped host its first-ever National Gathering in 2017 at Macalester College. The overarching Transition Network is a worldwide movement of communities reimagining and rebuilding our world: diverse groups of thinkers, doers, and creators gathering locally to build resilience, raise awareness of climate change, and transition to an ecologically sustainable, socially just, fulfilling life on Earth.

Here in St. Anthony Park, our projects are varied. The Transition Your Money group is finding ways to invest in a regenerative economy. Other projects include emergency preparedness,

community solar power, home energy, housing options, local school projects, sustainable food and land, transportation, and zero waste. A monthly Transition Tap meets seasonally to welcome newcomers over a local brew, and in the Reflective Circle we seek an "inner transition." 

 

We're guided by a core planning group that meets every fourth Thursday at 7:00 pm. All are welcome! See the listing on our home page

 

 

Transition Town - All St. Anthony Park is located in St. Paul, Minnesota. We are affiliated with the St. Anthony Park Community Council and are funded in part through a grant from the St. Anthony Park Community Foundation with support from the Metro Clean Energy Resource Team and the 3M Foundation.  We're "on the map" of the worldwide Transition Network and are part of the national Transition U.S. and the metro-area Transition Twin Cities
