‘Transition originally began when I moved to Totnes in Devon,’ Rob told Environment Journal.
‘I started inquiring with other local people to see what a community-led response to the climate crisis could look like.
‘We all knew what the government needed to do, and we knew what we could do as individuals, but at the time no one was exploring what we could do if we got together with other people in our communities, and this is where it all started.’
The Transition Network is now spread across 50 countries, with thousands of groups in towns, villages, cities, universities and schools all making concrete changes to their local communities, from introducing local currencies to holding plastic-free days.
