We are always looking for more articles to share. Writing an article for Transition Australia is easy.

Your topic should be something which is interesting or will inspire others.

You can write about what is happening in your group or broader sustainability topics the transition community may be interested in.

Your article should:

  • be 300-400 words
  • use 2-5 pictures, including a good landscape image
  • have a short heading which uses a capital only at the beginning
  • include ‘tags’ which automatically put stories into categories.

Here are some examples of great articles on our website:
