Giving a Transition Talk is one of the single most powerful actions we can undertake. Raising awareness is central to the Transition model and Transition US is committed to making this as easy as possible. The following presentations cover peak oil, climate change and the mechanics of Transition, along with the subtler subject of the inner transition we all need to go through if we're going to re-establish a harmonious relationship with the planet. Please feel free to adopt these presentations to your own style.

If you are a seasoned presenters of this material and are willing to take "the show on the road" we encourage you to let us know.  We will add you to our growing list of Transition Talk presenters.
