About the Transition movement

Transition is a worldwide movement of communities reimagining and rebuilding our world. It began small, in a primary school in Kinsale, Ireland, and took shape in Totnes, England. It now includes diverse groups of thinkers, doers, and creators on every continent on Earth. We gather locally to build resilience, share resources, raise limate change awareness, and transition to a sustainable, just, fulfilling life.
