Transition Network’s ‘Who We Are and What We Do’ Document Available

It has been along time in gestation, and we posted the text version of this a while ago, but we are delighted to present, in pdf. format, Version 1.0 of the Transition Network’s ‘Who We Are and What We Do’ document, lovingly designed by the good folks at MooreBlackett.  It was produced through several rounds of public meetings, the online forum, and with the input of many of you.  We are rather pleased with it as a document that captures what Transition Network is all about.  You can download a high resolution version here, or a low resolution version here. There will be some printed copies soon, contact Transition Network for details. We hope you find it useful and please do distribute it widely.

Greetings from Transition Denver…quick question…I notice that the 12 steps are not included here…but are referred to a couple of times….are we to assume that the 12 steps are still relevant/suggested/key to Transition Initiatives?
Thanks for all your hard work on this document and so much more….sincerely, Dana Miller

It should be brought to everyone’s attention that the official Wikipedia site has been setup and needs constant updating. I have attempted to update as much as I could. Others need to contribute.

This is an interesting document – it is not just a “who we are and what we do” it is also a “what we stand for (principles) and how we will do it (guidelines)(p.3, nothing wrong with stating that. It deserves careful reading.

Personally I get a bit worried when the things I’ve been moving towards start creating statements like “Transition initiatives focus on telling (sic) people the closest version of the truth (sic) that we know in times when the information available is deeply contradictory” (p.7) Cricky! So much to unpack and so little time.
