Weimar im Wandel

“As part of the worldwide Transition Town movement, since 2011 the initiative has acted locally and regionally in and around Weimar. As an eco-social citizens’ movement, it organizes events, initiates and supports many residential projects and founded the first solidary agriculture in Thuringia. Its goal is to create positive alternatives for resource-efficient living and to encourage dialogue about personal ecological behaviour. It does not wait for politics or industry, but shapes its living environment according to its ideals. ‘Don’t complain, change it!’ could be a good motto for the movement.” Andreas Bauermeister and Claudia Penseler represent Weimar im Wandel at KSWE 2016.
