welcome to The 2021 ReGenerative Communities Summit
Together we will create...
A space to reimagine,reclaim,
cocreate & connect
Friday, September 24 - Sunday, October 10
As the climate emergency, social crises, natural and everyday disasters continue to rock our communities, Transition and the broader movement for regenerative, just and resilient communities offer inspiration and hope through practical local action. Transition US invites all doers and dreamers, activists and community leaders, farmers and entrepreneurs, educators and artists, and everyday people eager to reimagine and rebuild our world.
Register for the Summit to enjoy real-time participation- as well as access to the recordings-of all our virtual programming!
In the wake of the pandemic that has kept us mostly apart for the past 18 months, it is now more important than ever for those of us who care about and are working towards a regenerative future to connect with each other, reenergize ourselves, and coordinate our efforts.
Together with dozens of partner organizations who are leading the transition to a more just and sustainable society, we will be offering an abundance of inspiring plenary sessions, skill-building workshops, dynamic discussion spaces, and engaging activities, tracing an arc from “What Is” to “What If” to “What’s Next.” Now is the time to call in the full strength of our networks and to call upon the spirit of “hope with its sleeves rolled up”, ready to do the work of building a resilient, just, and regenerative future-now. Communities across the globe are recognizing and responding to the call, reimagining and rebuilding our world, forging new paths, and embodying the courage to see the world with new eyes.
Will you join us?

tRANSITION ALLY AWARD:
We want to honor Joanna Macy Ph.D for all her immense work. Joanna is a scholar of Buddhism, systems thinking, and deep ecology. A respected voice in movements for peace, justice, and ecology, she interweaves her scholarship with learnings from six decades of activism. Her wide-ranging work addresses psychological and spiritual issues of the nuclear age, the cultivation of ecological awareness, and the fruitful resonance between Buddhist thought and postmodern science. The many dimensions of this work are explored in her thirteen books, which include three volumes of poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke with translation and commentary. As the root teacher of The Work That Reconnects, Joanna has created a ground-breaking framework for personal and social change, as well as a powerful workshop methodology for its application. Joanna will receive the Transition Ally Award and offer her remarks as part of our Catalyzing Ceremony on Friday, October 8th.”
