To create a sustainable, resilient, and vibrant community in the greater Sandpoint area.

Aiming for Transition
The Sandpoint Transition Initiative (STI) is a local group in the town of Sandpoint, Idaho, that aims to bring the community together, develop practical solutions and improve the quality of life for everyone. The goal of this initiative is to rebuild local resilience, reduce carbon emissions and achieve independence from un-renewable energy and other resources. Solutions will involve relocalization of our community’s needs. Together, these will form the backbone of a local Energy Descent Action and Sustainability Plan. This timetabled roadmap will define the steps leading towards a life that has minimal reliance on fossil fuels and dramatically lowers carbon emissions and profits from the abundance of resources and capabilities within our communities.
