We’re on the eve of profound transformation, propelled by both necessity and  opportunity. For so long, we’ve struggled with our seemingly intractable inability to manage the precious, limited resources available to us — a veritable “tragedy of the commons.” This has endured while the existential threat of climate disruption, resource depletion and population explosion grows.

Now is our time and our chance to act  differently, thanks to technology that connects us in once inconceivable ways. While these tools have already facilitated revolutionary transformation at a global scale, the more important shift is in our own hearts and minds. Suddenly, we can see new solutions to our historic challenges. We can come together as communities — not clans — to communicate and collaborate to evolve in a way that benefits both people and planet.

That is Transition World’s story, situated where Shakespeare’s haunted Hamlet appropriately asked the universal question, “To be or not to be?” It is here that we gather as individuals, civic groups, businesses, international organizations and public institutions. Together, we will share ideas, resources and networks. Through this powerful community we can reimagine the world as a true prosperity of the commons.

 

 

 

WE ARE THE TRANSITION TIME GENERATION

Humanity has entered a period of profound change. We are pushed by necessity and pulled by opportunity. The push is a growing systems crisis, evident in the breakdown of financial institutions, climate disruption, resource depletion, unsustainable population growth, and violent conflicts. The pull is the opportunity to rise to a new level of human maturity, partnership, and freedom. The combined push and pull at a global scale make this a time of profound change and transformation for humanity

Transition world is a powerful new approach to dealing with the profound challenges we face today. It’s a platform that brings together international organizations, civil society groups, business enterprises, and public institutions ready to seize the opportunity for creating a real and sustainable transition towards a more humane, equitable, and flourishing world.

Our approach is to work on 3 different levels simultaneously in order to evoke:

  1. Personal transformation – a new worldview that recognizes our basic interconnectedness and interdependence and promotes the flourishing of life on planet Earth in all its magnificent forms.
  2. Local transformation – how successful small-scale, local sustainability projects and new, evolving technologies can be made into successful mainstream initiatives.
  3. Global transformation – to catalyse strong and sustainable partnerships among people, communities, governments, NGO’s and businesses on a global scale.

Transition World’s member organizations are united in the realization that we need to connect, communicate, and collaborate – to share ideas and resources – if we are to be successful in co-creating viable long-term, workable solutions.
