What is the Transition movement? - preview
The Transition movement has a good claim to being the fastest-growing social movement in the UK
  • From its origins just four years ago in the small town of Totnes in Devon, it has grown into 170 ‘official’ Transition initiatives, with hundreds of others at the ‘mulling’ stage across the UK and in over thirty other countries

  • Still most widely known as ‘Transition Towns’, the movement is increasingly growing beyond its English market-town origins, to develop models of Transition initiative for every scale of community from villages and islands to major cities such as Bristol and Sheffield
