  1. 1. (flipchart notes are in red; scroll to the last page for links to more information)Transition Town City Neighbourhood Village Island …Transition initiative - a place where theres a community-led process that helps that town / village /city / neighbourhood become stronger and happier.Transition movement - bottom-up, open source model for social change aimed towards large scalebehavioural change, localization and resilience.What transition?http://www.transitionnetwork.org/support/what-transition-initiativeBefore / Away fromAfter / TowardsDisclaimer&Cheerful Disclaimer!Just in case you were under the impression that Transition is a process defined by people who haveall the answers, you need to be aware of a key fact.We truly dont know if this will work. Transition is a social experiment on a massive scale.What we are convinced of is this: • if we wait for the governments, itll be too little, too late • if we act as individuals, itll be too little • but if we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time.Origins:Permaculture, Australia, mid-1970s - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PermacultureKinsale, Ireland, 2005 - http://www.transitiontownkinsale.org/Totnes, England, 2006 - http://www.transitiontowntotnes.org/
