Who we are

We’re ordinary extraordinary people—just like you!

Wilmington in Transition (WIT)

WIT’s mission is to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, foster ecological sustainability, and build local resilience, while strengthening our community. 

Working together we are bolstering our local economy, investing in local resources, learning from each other, and having fun! Through sharing of ideas and skills, we nurture creativity in formulating more effective ways to address climate change, energy concerns, and economic challenges – leading us to embrace positive alternatives that will move us toward a more just, happy and sustainable society.

Wilmington in Transition is open to any resident of the greater Wilmington area interested in taking action with others to build a more sustainable and resilient community.

The status quo is what we need to change if we are to thrive as a civilized species. Or even survive, with the rest of Earth’s life.

If we wait for governments, institutions and businesses to lead us to make the changes we need, it will be too late!

As individuals if we making lifestyle choices to live more sustainably, it will not be enough change (fast enough).

If we act together, as communities, we can implement changes that will ‘trickle up,’ and effect the status quo It may just be enough, soon enough!

If the people lead, the leaders will follow!
