Transition Network is a charity which works to inspire, encourage, connect, support and train communities world-wide as they self-organise around the Transition model.

We work with and alongside a grass-roots movement of independent Transition initiative community groups and Transition Hubs in many countries.  We aim to evolve as an organisation alongside the Transition movement, which is changing and deepening, while being clear about the roles that we undertake.

A strength of the Transition movement is that people working at local community level can learn from others in communities around the world.  Transition Network is constantly looking for ways to encourage and enable the sharing of ideas, learning and support, across and beyond the Transition movement.  Being part of a network means we can create change more quickly and more effectively, drawing on each other’s experiences and insights.

How Transition Plymouth Started

Transition Plymouth started with an open meeting on 19th June 2009 at the Roland Levinsky building of Plymouth University. Transition Network's Ben Bragwyng was an invited guest and guide for our first two meetings along with Plymothians.

Different ways of approaching sustainability were discussed.

The initiative continued to hold monthly open meetings for a year. From its beginning it was an open process trying to work
as horizontally and inclusively as possible, learning to use consensus as a way to take participatory decisions.
