Why Transition?

People get involved with Transition for all sorts of reasons:

• To get to know their neighbours

• To feel that they are making a difference in the world, both now, and for future generations

• To overcome the sense of disconnection they feel from self, others and from the nature around them because the world’s huge challenges feel more manageable if addressed at the local scale

• To catalyse all manner of new projects, enterprises and investment opportunities

• To learn new skills

• To feel like they are creating a more life enhancing story for their place

• To feel connected to other people, the natural world, and to something historic and exciting happening around them

• Because they feel it is “the right thing to do”

• Because they feel disenfranchised by politics and want to be able to take back a sense that they can influence the world around them
