Transition Network

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.

. @theyesmen set up a bogus company called #Yasava to call out #COP26 greenwashing.

"If the most ridiculous company imaginable can meet the flagship net-zero standard, then we should not take the concept of net-zero seriously at all." - @Ggow_COP

Civil society groups, including those representing communities most affected by climate change, are locked out of #COP26 negotiations while the fossil fuel industry has more accredited delegates than any single nation state

This will never be known as a fair COP.
