Our Future

Building Resilient Communities Across Britain

Across the country people are feeling things can’t keep going as they are.

The climate crisis, inequality, division and widespread discrimination show our political and economic systems are not serving the wellbeing of people or the planet. But people from all walks of life are coming together to turn this around and build a better future. Communities are stepping up to address the big challenges they face by starting local.

If we wait for governments, it will be too late. If we act as individuals, it will be too little. But if we act as communities, it might just be enough, and it might just be in time. Transition Together supports people to connect locally to build more sustainable and equal communities where we have control over our day to day lives. Explore our groups, upcoming events, news and stories, plus the support and funding we offer for community-led change.

What is the Transition Movement?

Transition is an international movement of communities coming together to reimagine and rebuild our world. Since 2005, thousands of groups have emerged in villages, cities, universities and schools in more 50 countries.

Transition is about people taking practical action together in their local area to address the big challenges they face. Between us, we are building a more equal, sustainable and democratic future.

Join a Local Group

People in every neighbourhood have the power to make their local community more sustainable and socially just. The first step is to come together.

Transition groups and local organisers are the beating heart of our movement. There are over 300 Transition groups across Britain already taking action to build a different future.

Connect with your local group, or start one yourself if there isn’t one near you.
