Transition Network – The Charity

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.

Transition Network was established as a company limited by guarantee in March 2007, and registered as a charity in March 2009.  Transition Network currently has four roles:

  • Holding the Transition “source code”: collating the up-to-date “what, why and how” of Transition – recognising that there is innovation taking place all around the Transition movement.
  • Catalysing and supporting the spread of Transition globally: helping people everywhere to have access to information, training and other support relating to Transition.
  • Co-ordinating and supporting the network of Transition Hubs: we work with the Transition Hubs to develop this as an international network with strong links, sharing support and information.
  • Acting as the Transition Hub for England and Wales: and supporting a separate hub to develop to support Transition initiatives in England and Wales.
