Transition Network launches 'Transition Together'

Transition Network, the UK's umbrella organisation for Transition groups, has received nearly £6m from the Lottery Fund for a new project called 'Transition Together'.  

This is very substantial funding, but at the moment there is only very general information about what the project will involve.  We will post further information when it becomes available.

This is part of an article by Transition Network's Rhiannon Colvin

Today we are excited to launch Transition Together, a new project to help build more resilient, empowered and sustainable communities across Britain from the ground up. 

As the dust settles after COP26, never has change been so urgent and necessary. We are inspired by activists across the climate movement who took a stand for a just and inclusive transition. From the young people who took to the streets and social media, to the COP26 Coalition who drew people together across the world, to the radical ideas for change and the marginalised voices refusing to be ignored.

The last fortnight has not made us more optimistic or more pessimistic, but more determined. More determined to go back to our local communities and start building our power, strength and capacity to change our future. To build the more equal and sustainable towns, cities and countries that our hearts are longing for. In the words of Ben Brangwyn co-founder of the Transition movement: 

“If we wait for governments, it will be too late. If we act as individuals, it will be too little. But if we act as communities, it might just be enough, and it might just be in time.”

Growing Great Ideas - New Funding Announcement

We are excited to announce that Transition Network has received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund to develop, deepen and grow the capacity and impact of Transition groups and movement across Great Britain over the next 10 years.This type of long term funding will be hugely beneficial to our movement and means the work our team started through Transition Bounce Forward will be able to continue and upscale. For Transition groups based in Britain this means access to regular seed funding opportunuties, training, events, peer support and more. It also means we can develop partnerships with lots of interesting organisations across the country and play a key role in building more sustainable and socially just communities across Britain.We hope you are as excited as we are. We will be launching with a new name and website in September - so watch this space!
