The transition movement is a global movement that aims to create an awareness of climate change and the end of cheap energy. It is small-scale local responses to the global challenges of climate change, economic hardship and shrinking supplies of cheap carbon-based energy. Transition initiatives are typically from the ground-up and are local groups who are passionate about their localities: this should sound familiar to the OpenStreetMap community. An overview of the transition movement will be presented along with the problems being addressed. Some ideas for “transition mapping” are shown before a brief comparison of the transition movement to that of the OpenStreetMap community.
