What is a Transition Town?

Transition Towns are a new approach to community-level sustainability and are based on the ethos that we need to plan for a future that includes economic uncertainty, climate change and the end of cheap fossil fuels. We need to work together to address these issues at a local level.

Climate change and economic uncertainty make change essential; peak oil makes change inevitable; however, Transition makes positive change desirable.

If we plan and act as a community, we can help shape our own future. Our grassroots approach recognises that every community is different and that politicians don’t have all the answers. By working together and sharing our collective skills and creativity, we can design ways of living that are more community centred, sustainable and satisfying than at present.

The Transition Towns movement started in the UK, but you’ll now find hundreds of Transition Groups all around the world, building better futures for their communities.

How can I get involved?

  1. Join Transition Town Worthing
  2. Come to an event or join a project
  3. Enjoy yourself
  4. Don't protest. Produce!
