Transition network with a purpose

04 September 2018

Nicola Hillary, of the transition Network, emailed in August

"We're pleased to report that the Transition Network team has agreed a new organisational purpose as part of our recent strategic review.  The review process began in autumn 2017 with a survey of Transitioners around the world, asking you about your experiences and learning, where you see potential and what is challenging for your group or Hub.  We summarised the survey findings here and also provided more information about our team discussions.

"We then had conversations with representatives from Transition Hubs and listened to more feedback from Transitioners, before Transition Network trustees and staff did their best to capture the essence of what our organisation is aiming to do.

"We will use our new organisational purpose to guide our choices as an organisation; it will help us focus our attention and resources wisely, decide what projects to develop and when and how to act.  The Transition Network team will meet each year to review how we're doing in delivering on our purposeand to reflect whether and how it needs to evolve.  We will continue to seek feedback from the wider Transition movement to guide this process.

"We'd like to send a very large thank you to everyone who took time to respond to our consultation.  We really appreciate the clearer - and yet very diverse - view this has given us of activities, passion, learnings and needs around the Transition movement.  Best wishes."

Nicola Hillary,
