Hamptons in Transition (HiT) is a group of people on the eastern end of Long Island, NY, working to build a local community network that sustains a resilient future.
We are a local network of people and organizations that together are finding ways for our community to adapt to environmental and economic challenges. We are connected to an international movement called the Transition Network, which is spreading throughout the US and the world.
Our area is fortunate to have many groups that seek to protect our environment, preserve our history and help our community thrive.
Sea Scout Ship 908 is one of the local groups we partner with.
- Positive Visioning
- Help people access good information; trust them to make good decisions
- Inclusion and openness
- Enable sharing and networking
- Build resilience
- Inner and outer transition
- Self-organization and decision making at the appropriate level
Who’s involved or playing a part in making Hamptons in Transition a reality?
- We are a community of farmers, fishers, baymen, builders, and business owners who share the goal of economic prosperity in the face of diminishing resources, spiraling costs, and environmental challenges.
- We are a community of historians, preservationists, and environmentalists who strive to maintain our historic integrity, protect our natural resources, and preserve a sustainable and healthy existence for ourselves and future generations.
- We are teachers, parents, and families who want to preserve a way of life that is enriching and satisfying. We envision our children growing up in this beautiful place, knowing how to care for it, and having the financial ability to remain here as adults if they choose.
- We are writers, artists, and performers who want a culturally rich environment where our work is valued and the surroundings are inspiring.
- We are residents and visitors who enjoy the local businesses, protected beaches, and the rural quality of life.
