What do we mean by Transition?

Transition is a people-led movement that has been growing since 2005.  It is about local communities stepping up to address the big ecological challenges we face by taking action and making a difference in our own localities. We are people working together to find ways to make the ‘transition’ from our dependency on fossil fuels to a sustainable low carbon future – hence the name Transition Network.

We have four groups. Click on the group to find out more.

The groups come together quarterly as a Co-ordinating Group to share what groups are doing and to organise public meetings and other joint events.
