We face numerous environmental problems, such as climate change and the loss of biodiversity. In order to free ourselves from an oil dependent society and economy on the verge of oil depletion, we must develop a sustainable, low carbon lifestyle and community structure which values and respects nature and our historical and cultural heritage. This is a process of re-localization, of creating a joyous and abundant lifestyle in harmony with nature. Non-profit organizations supporting this transition are dearly needed.
