"If we wait for the government, it's going to be too little too late;
As individuals, it's just going to be too little,
But if we do it as communities, together, it might just be enough, just in time."
Spoken by Ben Brangwyn from Transition Network in Peter Day's In Business Podcast 'Growing Pains'. (Transcription into verse, is therefore my artistic licence.)
Here, Ben was talking about a specific project: Totnes, a town which has adopted the Transition Model in order to "respond to the challenges, and opportunities, of Peak Oil and Climate Change."
So, I have taken his words completely out of context but I think they can easily be applied to the need for collective accountability and making sure that we get involved in the things that matter to us. And of course, that we attract, seek and welcome the efforts of others to make our journey more efficient and enjoyable.
