The aim of this Beginner’s Guide is to get you up and running doing Transition, and to point you to the online resources you’ll need in order to do that most successfully. We'll tell you more below, but for now, we just need to make an important point.

One of the things that we have learned from doing Transition is to distinguish between the kind of group you will now be forming, – either an Initiating Group or a Core Group – and the kind of group that your Transition initiative will end up being.

How to start Transition

An Initiating Group

Getting Transition started in a community needs a group who can commit time and energy and have a range of skills and experience. It doesn't happen by magic! This group will carry out the first stage of the Transition process and we call them the Initiating Group. It would be ideal if everyone involved in this process read this guide and then meet to come up with a plan on how to start Transition.


Our Transition Launch training is one of the best foundations for starting Transition. Find out more here:
