Transition: Bounce Forward

In true Transition form, Transition Network's vision is not to ‘bounce back’ to how things were before the Covid-19 pandemic.  Transition groups have been crafting a vision of a better future for over a decade, that speaks to the needs for community resilience and a society with a focus on caring.  So instead of bouncing back, Transition Network invites you to join and bounce forward.

As the first step of Transition: Bounce Forward, Transition Network held a series of four online 'What Is' events from 7th-10th September 2020. 

Watch videos of these events 

This will be followed by  'What If?' - an active and imaginative visioning process that a Transition group can use to explore what we want to Bounce Forward to.

'What Next?' is an online summit being developed with CTRLshift that will bring all this thinking together.  We will join with others from outside of the Transition movement to explore how we can advocate for wider and ambitious societal changes towards a just recovery, and make our visions our reality. (20th-28th February 2021).
