It seems fairly clear that, whatever our stance regarding conflict, efforts spent now to learn practical skills, become more self-sufficient, and form bonds of trust with neighbors will pay off in the long run. —Richard Heinberg1

While there are many "wounds" the Transition movement is working to heal, perhaps the deepest of these is disconnection—from our authentic selves, from the earth, and from each other. —Don Hall

Sponsor Spotlights are a series of short interviews designed to introduce you to some of the amazing organizations who are actively supporting our upcoming Transition US National Gathering, which will take place in St. Paul, Minnesota at the end of July. This post focuses on Transition Twin Cities, a support hub for neighborhood-level Transition initiatives in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.

 “Without question, this is absolutely the best and most creative film on the future of humanity and the environment”.

— Paul Hawken

We are pleased to announce the 2017 Transition US Photo Contest!

We're always looking for powerful images to help us promote (and communicate the impact of) this amazing movement toward local resilience. Do you have any great shots of your local Transition initiative in action?

Send in your best transition pics for a chance to send a delegate from your local initiative to this summer's Transition National Gathering... on the house!

I was twenty-five years old when I started working for Transition US almost four years ago, and since then one of my strong desires has been to engage more young people in our movement. I’ve seen the energy and passion young people bring to social change work. And as the ones who are inheriting a planet in distress, we need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the future.

Thank you!!!

 

There’s so much attention on the upcoming election, and with good reason: our future is at stake. But it’s important to remember that political power is tied to economic power, and we vote every day for the kind of world we want to live in with every dollar we spend and every purchase we make.

Our Transition Initiative is called Urban Transition Cities Movement (UTCM). It is an intergenerational and multi-disciplinary movement that integrates informal, mediating, and formal service delivery units in a vertical and horizontal manner.
