Growing Great Ideas - New Funding Announcement

We are excited to announce that Transition Network has received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund to develop, deepen and grow the capacity and impact of Transition groups and movement across Great Britain over the next 10 years.This type of long term funding will be hugely beneficial to our movement and means the work our team started through Transition Bounce Forward will be able to continue and upscale. For Transition groups based in Britain this means access to regular seed funding opportunuties, training, events, peer support and more. It also means we can develop partnerships with lots of interesting organisations across the country and play a key role in building more sustainable and socially just communities across Britain.We hope you are as excited as we are. We will be launching with a new name and website in September - so watch this space!

Transition What next? Summit    March 2021

This very successful series of events was held online over three weeks in March.  The organisers write

Thank you to all of you who joined us and participated to make the What Next? Summit such a wonderful event. 2,000 community activists came together across 3 weeks, to listen to over 70 speakers and take part in a mesmerising multiplicity of conversations about positive changes in our communities. Thank you.

If you missed the Summit, don’t worry, Rob Hopkins has written a round up of the key moments and reflections here. We also recorded most of the sessions, so that you can watch them again, or enjoy them for the first time. Watch the What Next? Summit sessions on our YouTube playlist here.
