Cheerful Disclaimer: Like the rest of Transition, the Transition Streets Cohort is an experiment! This is our second time offering a Cohort-type support program to local Transition Initiatives, based on what we learned from the successful Transition Streets Pilot Cohort. We'd like to share some what we've learned with you to help you succeed in bringing Transition Streets to your own neighborhood, and we'd also love your input and feedback on how we do, and what we might change for future Cohorts.
