Transition Together - year 2 and the future

From Transition Together January newsletter

While Transition Together was initially envisaged as a 10-year plan of transformative change, restructuring at The National Lottery Community Fund means the programme which funded our work won't be continuing. The Community Fund is supporting us to work out future plans and options. We see immense value in the work the Movement is doing – and in resourcing the infrastructure to support you. A priority for the coming year will be to secure the resources needed to continue and build on what we've achieved in Transition Together, shaping that with the movement. We will soon be sharing more details of this.

The first year of Transition Together

What if… communities everywhere had the power, knowledge and opportunity to lead change, building a better world for everyone from the ground up?  That’s the vision of Transition Together, a project to grow and strengthen this work for community-led action in England and Wales. 

We are part of the international Transition movement, which emerged in the UK in 2005.  Now the Transition Network links communities in 50 countries taking practical action to ‘transition’ away from the unsustainable and divisive ways we are living to resilient, active and caring communities.

Transition Network launches 'Transition Together'

Transition Network, the UK's umbrella organisation for Transition groups, has received nearly £6m from the Lottery Fund for a new project called 'Transition Together'.  

This is part of an article by Transition Network's Rhiannon Colvin

Today we are excited to launch Transition Together, a new project to help build more resilient, empowered and sustainable communities across Britain from the ground up. 

As the dust settles after COP26, never has change been so urgent and necessary. We are inspired by activists across the climate movement who took a stand for a just and inclusive transition. From the young people who took to the streets and social media, to the COP26 Coalition who drew people together across the world, to the radical ideas for change and the marginalised voices refusing to be ignored.

The last fortnight has not made us more optimistic or more pessimistic, but more determined. More determined to go back to our local communities and start building our power, strength and capacity to change our future. To build the more equal and sustainable towns, cities and countries that our hearts are longing for. In the words of Ben Brangwyn co-founder of the Transition movement: 

“If we wait for governments, it will be too late. If we act as individuals, it will be too little. But if we act as communities, it might just be enough, and it might just be in time.”
