Transition Howard County (THC) has just become the 144th officially recognized Transition initiative in the United States and is the first official Transition initiative in Maryland. 

THC is now part of the national Transition US movement that provides inspiration, encouragement, support, and networking, committed to building resilience across a wide range of social needs such as food, water, health, economics, and energy.  The national Transition movement is in close partnership with the Transition Network, a United Kingdom based organization, that supports the international Transition movement as a whole.  The international Transition Network provides a global platform for expressing and exchanging ideas and projects that demonstrate Transition principles.

                           

Our forum
on Health and Our Changing Climate 
at Howard Community College 
was a great success

Faculty, students, health officials, and the general public heard several topics on the consequences of climate change on global health and in Howard County.  The keynote speakers demonstrated the reality of climate change and the effort to mitigate its impact.  Panel discussion focused on the most vulnerable population and how the community can respond to climate change.  Details and access to the presentation can be found on the Health page.
