Galway City Council, Transition Galway
Like Totnes Town Council in the UK, Galway City Council would adopt a motion to become a ‘Council in Transition’. In this scenario, sustainability and resilience would be central to all of the council’s policies, work and activities. Special training would be arranged for executive members and council staff. Certain specialist staff would need to be recruited. The council would prepare a detailed plan for the city showing how the city would become low carbon and prepare for the impacts of peak oil and climate change. Such a council would inform citizens about environmental challenges and community-based solutions.
