The film makes a case that “going local” is a strategy to help repair ecosystems, societies and oneself.
This documentary features Vandana Shiva, Bill McKibben, David Korten, Michael Shuman, Juliet Schor, Richard Heinberg, Rob Hopkins, Andrew Simms, Zac Goldsmith and Samdhong Rinpoche.
Transition Hendersonville and Transition Polk County officials have said they envision resilient, healthy and productive communities. The group’s goals are to  reduce individual and collective carbon footprints and build relationships with one another during times of economic uncertainty, climate change and the end of cheap oil.
