Ruah Swennerfelt is an activist, homesteader, and author of the book, Rising to the Challenge: The Transition Movement and People of Faith. She is General Secretary of Quaker Earthcare Witness, and has traveled to work with the Transition Movement in Europe, Palestine, Brazil, and the United States. The Transition Movement is comprised of vibrant, grassroots community initiatives that seek to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. Transition Initiatives differentiate themselves from other sustainability and “environmental” groups by seeking to mitigate these converging global crises by engaging their communities in home-grown, citizen-led education, action, and multi-stakeholder planning to increase local self reliance and resilience.
