The Transition model includes relocalization of our lifestyle habits, rebuilding our local economic base, reconnecting our local communities, and retraining people in the skills of a power-down life (a lifestyle that uses less oil, less gas, less electricity, less energy overall).
The goal is to increase societal resilience, our ability to adapt and to weather the great changes ahead.
There are now over 100 official Transition Initiative sites worldwide -- local areas in the UK, Australia, Japan, and beyond which are preparing for change by organizing themselves and building local resilience. Projects are in the works in hundreds more areas; in Southern California these include Los Angeles, Orange County, South Bay and San Fernando Valley. Learn about local Los Angeles "pods" here.
