What is Transition?

There are many ways of trying to summarise the Transition or Transition Towns model, and it seems to offer a limitless and extremely diverse tapas of ideas, tools, applications and successful projects across the Transition movement. Simply, the Transition model encompasses everything that is necessary for the transition to a healthier, happier, resilient, thriving and sustainable society beyond carbon.

It takes a positive approach to setting about solving the challenges before us with gusto and imagination, a little humour, obstinate hope and courage, and draws upon the wisdom of permaculture design principles….. in other words, the things that seem to work in nature.
