Local economy

We can reimagine our local economies to

serve the many, not the few: incubating

new enterprises and valuing the local.

Participatory Democracy

Decisions are made in a far more decentralised, engaged, bottom-up way, with the role of government being to support what communities are deciding.

From Burnout to Balance*

Transition groups are learning how to co-create a new culture based on collective and self-care and which recognises our own health and wellbeing as essential to truly helpful engagement

in Transition. Some groups have mentoring schemes, where professional counsellors and therapists support those at the

heart of Transition, minimising the risk of burnout.


Many Transition groups promote sustainable transport, learning bike repair skills, supporting new cyclists to gain confidence.
