Transition Brockville Meetings (Formerly Brockville Climate Action Group)

In partnership with the Brockville Public Library, Transition Brockville, a local citizens' group founded in 2007, holds free public presentations and information sessions. The meeting topics promote the City of Brockville's sustainability and help individuals and our community transition away from a global economy dependent on fossil fuels to one that is more locally based. In this way people can be more resilient to the challenges presented by climate change, resource depletion, overpopulation and economic stagnation.

Last Sunday of the month at 2pm @ the Brockville Public Library (unless otherwise noted)

Up-to-date meeting information is always available at Transition Brockville
If you have specific interests or suggestions for future presentations, please send to [email protected]
