Richmond Rivets is a Transition Initiative based in Richmond, California.
Our focus, like other Transition Initiatives, is to re-localize the essential elements of our community which are needed to sustain and thrive in a world increasingly challenged by dwindling oil supplies (also known as peak oil) and climate change.
Our vision is of a vibrant, resilient Richmond, California where progress means interdependence, resourcefulness, and plenty for all.
We began meeting in September 2009 to discuss how we could best work together to build local resilience in Richmond. There is much work ahead, but we are excited to take on the challenge and would love to have you join us.
