Transition communities are attempts to build resilience in response to
by building local groups focused on upholding the values of the transition network.

These communities approach aspects of everyday life
as small-scale local responses to the global challenges of climate change, economic hardship and shrinking supplies of 'cheap' energy.
Transition communities recognise and act today on the high probability that transitioning to a lower energy future will soon become a necessity due to the expected climate change and diminishing supplies of fossil fuels.
Transition initiatives are actively and cooperatively creating happier, fairer and stronger communities, places that may work for the people living in them and which seem to be far better suited to dealing with the shocks that'll accompany economic and energy challenges not too far ahead.
All together these groups could create something large enough to stand out and potentially pave the way for governments, business and the rest of us to follow.
