Bringing A New World To Life

Transition US is a nonprofit organization that provides inspiration, encouragement, support, networking, and training for Transition Initiatives across the United States. We are working in close partnership with the Transition Network, a UK based organization that supports the international Transition Movement as a whole.

The Transition Movement is a vibrant, grassroots movement that seeks to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. It represents one of the most promising ways of engaging people in strengthening their communities against the effects of these challenges, resulting in a life that is more abundant, fulfilling, equitable and socially connected.

We believe that we can make the transition to a more sustainable world. We hope that you will join us.

2019: A Year in Review

Welcome Message from Rob Hopkins


Our Story

Our vision is that every community in the United States has engaged its collective creativity to unleash an extraordinary and historic transition to a future beyond fossil fuels; a future that is more vibrant, abundant and resilient; one that is ultimately preferable to the present.

Why Collaborate?

There is an urgent need to build solutions that address the problems resource depletion, climate change and economic vulnerability. We have to equip people and communities with the appropriate skills and knowledge that will enable them to make the transition to a sustainable future. Transition US is doing all it can to provide this support, but it is clearly not possible for this single organization to do it all.
