The Transition Network Newsletter

A movement of communities
coming together to re-imagine
and rebuild our world.
As autumn takes over from summer, we offer a number of Inner Transition coures and reflections, we’re looking for new Trustees and earthquake news from Italy.
Could you help Transition Network with its strategic direction? Transition Network is looking for three new Trustees/Directors, including a Co-Chair of the Board of Trustees. You will help Transition Network with strategic development and good governance of the charity. We are keen to include more non-UK Trustees, practicalities permitting. This is a voluntary, unpaid position, and you’d need the capacity to contribute 1-2 days per month to Transition Network business. Closing Date: 29th September 2016 More details here:
Italy earthquakeResilience in Action
Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the recent earthquake in central Italy. A team of Transitioners have leapt to respond – you can support them.


In alignment with the seasons and our natural cycles, Transition Network’s Inner Transition strand is entering its height of activity for the year with a series of trainings.

This year we have launched a REconomy UK Newsletter for groups and individuals who are interested in transforming the economic destiny of their local community. The next edition is out in September and will include information on new resources, upcoming events and other great stuff. To start receiving the newsletter please click here.

As is the tradition here at, we took it easy over August, recharging our batteries, and trying to model being an organisation that takes its being as importantly as its doing. In October and November our theme is Migration and opportunity. For myself, over September and October I will be off cycling 3,000km along the Iron Curtain trail, from Stettin on the Baltic to Trieste on the Adriatic. You can follow my progress here:
