Transition Cowichan

Transition Cowichan is a volunteer initiative working to empower our community to build resilience in response to the challenges of global warming and the impacts of accelerating climate change, peak oil, and global economic instability and inequity.

With a focus on community building, Transition Cowichan hopes to inspire ourselves and others in working collectively to make our Cowichan communities healthy, sustainable places to work, play, and raise future generations. This initiative will ultimately be shaped by all who are able to participate, in whatever way they can.

We seek to bring together and work with those in our community who are already working on local resilience and self-sufficiency in food, water, energy and other matters vital to healthy communities. We also seek, new models for community transformation which will help us reach our goal of community resilience and sustainability.

Why Transition?



We are living in an age of unprecedented change, with a number of converging crises: Global warming, overpopulation, erosion of community, food insecurity, declining biodiversity, global economic instability and resource wars - all connected to our dependence on cheap, non-renewable fossil fuels.
