What is Transition?

Henley in Transition was founded in 2008.

Transition is a movement of communities coming together to reimagine and rebuild our world.

Transition has been growing since 2005. It is about communities stepping up to address the big challenges we face by starting local. By coming together, we are able to crowd-source solutions. We seek to nurture a caring culture, one focused on supporting each other, both as groups or as wider communities.

In practice, we are reclaiming the economy, sparking entrepreneurship, reimagining work, reskilling ourselves and weaving webs of connection and support. It’s an approach that has spread now to over 50 countries, in thousands of groups: in towns, villages, cities, Universities, schools. One of the key ways it spreads is through telling inspiring stories, and that’s what we aim to do on this website. We really hope you feel inspired to take part, we’d be honoured if you did.
