Transition is a movement that has been growing since 2005. It is about communities stepping up to address the big challenges they face by starting local. By coming together, they are able to crowd-source solutions. They seek to nurture a caring culture, one focused on supporting each other, both as groups or as wider communities.

In practice, they are reclaiming the economy, sparking entrepreneurship, reimagining work, reskilling themselves and weaving webs of connection and support. It’s an approach that has spread now to over 50 countries, in thousands of groups: in towns, villages, cities, Universities, schools. One of the key ways it spreads is through telling inspiring stories

What we love about it:

It is hard to pick just one thing, but their shared governance model and clear purpose is a fabulous foundation to all their work.

We're really excited that the Essential Guide to Doing Transition has just been translated into Dutch - that’s 16 languages now!

First published in 2016, it remains a great guide to beginning the journey of doing extraordinary things where you live.

“What if grief was given its due? What if grief was given its full space... was actually given enough time and space to exist?... it’s profound to see what would have to change in order for that to be true.” - @adriennemaree
