What is A Transition Town?
Transition is a movement of communities coming together to reimagine and rebuild our world. The movement started here in the UK in 2006, and has since multiplied across the country and the wider world, where there are nearly 1,000 initiatives following the inspiration and principles of the Transition Town.
Community is at the heart of everything Transition Towns do, and bottom-up community-led action has produced real change and impact on many towns that have taken this on. Take a look at the short video below for a very short history of the movement
What are our aims for Rugby?
Transition Town Rugby is still growing, however our common goal is to work towards improving our town and the well-being of the people who live here, through positive action. We are committed to remaining non-political and working with and alongside other community organisations. If your community could use some help, or you want to start something yourself, get in touch or come to our next meeting!
Who is involved?
Anyone and everyone who wants to be involved can be! In its early stages we have already got onboard a diverse group of people including health workers, farmers, local councillors, engineers, teachers, people who have come from other organisations and of course people who just want to do something or find out what its all about.
Of course we still need more people, because more people means more ideas and more action, and stronger community links. You don’t need any special skills or qualifications, just an open mind and a willingness to chip in.
The Transition Network website contains loads of resources and interesting information, as well as highlighting some of the amazing achievements of other initiatives around the world.
