Sweet Songs Collection no. 11: The Transition Network

The Transition Network helps communities all over the world move toward a healthier lifestyle.
The Transition Network helps communities all over the world move toward fossil-free living.

The Transition Network is an initiative started in 2006 by Rob Hopkins and Naresh Giangrande. Over the years, the organisation has developed the core elements of a model that enables communities to move out of the age of fossil fuels toward healthier solutions.

“In our vision of the future, people work together to find ways to live with a lot less reliance on fossil fuels and on over-exploitation of other planetary resources, much reduced carbon emissions, improved wellbeing for all and stronger local economies. The Transition movement is an ongoing social experiment, in which communities learn from each other and are part of a global and historic push towards a better future for ourselves, for future generations and for the planet.”

For more information on The Transition Network, click here or watch a 6 minute introductory interview here, on our Sweet Songs page.
