THE TRANSITION NETWORK

The Transition Network is “about communities stepping up to address the big challenges they face by starting local. By coming together, they are able to crowd-source solutions. They seek to nurture a caring culture, one focused on supporting each other, both as groups or as wider communities. In practice, they are reclaiming the economy, sparking entrepreneurship, reimagining work, reskilling themselves and weaving webs of connection and support.”

Their free online guide has great information for starting local projects: http://transitionnetwork.org/resources/essential-guide-transition/
