Transition Network UK

This site is home to Transition Initiatives and the Transition Network.

It's a "wiki" for use by all the communities that have adopted the Transition Model for responding positively and creatively to the twin challenges of Peak Oil and Climate Change.

This site provides a focal point for all of these towns, villages, cities and localities around the world as they implement their own Transition Initiative.


TRANSITION TOWNS: An Interview with Rob Hopkins

 The founder of a growing movement shows us around 'Transition Town Totnes' in Devon and talks about peak oil, the origin of the Transition Towns concept and how to help your community develop an 'energy descent plan' and prepare to 'power down.'

Rob Hopkins' Transition Handbook

Founder of the Transition Network spreading throughout the world, Rob Hopkins talks about Transition Town Totnes and moving towards a post-peak oil society. His book The Transition Handbook gives an account of the founding of Transition Town Totnes, and the global spread of Transition towns. He shows you how to start the Transition process in your community, and why it is important that communities are resilient to the coming decline of oil as an energy source. He also includes the facts about peak oil, and puts a persuasive argument for acting now, rather than later.
