Transition towns: energy based towns- fossil fuels to other forms of energy. Involves creating new forms of democratic systems Resilience : a resilient system can react relatively quickly to disasters because the nature of its design is more local and relationship-based. Self-organizing principles that can respond by itself to external problems, does not require outside intervention. Ie Cuba surviving peak oil- cuba had been dependent on fossil fuel, forced to develop a new way of running, local/organic food production. Transfer from mechanistic system to a resilient system. New principle of organization, even resilient systems may not be able to withstand the coming climate crisis Alter-globalization : -Counter summit protest (Seattle, Genoa) -Place based movements; transnational networks (Zapatista movement/ Subcomandante Marcos, La Via Campesina/ Patel) -World Social Forum -Everyday practices (community gardening, urban farming, transition towns) *Not based on governments/states, some aims to reform policy but more focused on grassroots movements -Movement from below (bottom-up approach)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
