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.”

The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation (NAPF) works to foster hope and inspiration and to promote active engagement in peace building. One of its main areas of activity is related to obtaining a signed treaty banning and eliminating all nuclear weapons worldwide. The organisation also offers educational resources to help people better understand the issues of peace and the abolition of nuclear weapons.

There are approximately 17,000 nuclear weapons in the world in nine countries: United States, Russia, United Kingdom, France, China, Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korea. Over 90% nuclear weapons are in the arsenals of the United States and Russia.
