Transition Bluffton is having a Launch Party!, an Idea-Raising Event with Cake! This event celebrates the creation of Transition Bluffton, an organization that is bringing people together to build sustainability in Bluffton and beyond.
The Launch Party will also serve as a brainstorming session for future events and projects. The event will be from 7-9 p.m. on May 16, 2017, on the 3rd floor of Bluffton Town Hall, 154 N. Main St.
In February 2017, some 30 people gathered in Bluffton for an official training weekend led by a certified trainer from Transition United States. The launch party will use methods learned for generating and discussing ideas, giving everyone the chance to contribute and respond.
Transition Bluffton will be hosting a talk on energy efficiency and alternative/renewable energy sources by Dan Klear, owner of Superior Energy Solutions, Ottawa, Ohio. The event will be held on Tuesday, January 17th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room on the third floor of Bluffton Town Hall, 154 North Main St., Bluffton, Ohio.
Winter is an especially good time to learn about changes you can make to conserve energy and reduce your utility bills. Are you are curious about how a home energy audit can help reduce your energy consumption? Would you like to learn how alternative/renewable energy sources such as solar panels or wind generators can make you more energy independent? Here is a great opportunity to learn, share and connect with other interested people in the area.
Dan Klear is an industrial engineer and founded Superior Energy Solutions in 2009.
Transition Bluffton is a local group, modeled after the Transition Town Movement. Transition Towns are vibrant, grassroots community initiatives, that seek to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and economic uncertainty.
Please join the Bluffton University Sustainability Club and Transition Bluffton for a free showing and discussion of the film “Voices of Transition” on campus at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, November 15th, in room 113, Centennial Hall.
