Transition Streets Course – Online

Zoom with others on the path to a more sustainable life

2020 has made us all more aware of our neighbours and the importance of connecting and working together.

Transition Streets is about working with others in your community to make your home and your street more sustainable. Getting together and looking at key issues – Energy, Food, Water, Waste, and Transport.

The Transition Streets Course is an online version of the main Transition Streets Handbook. It is based around a shorter 32 page printable pdf /ebook with extension web pages, resources, and activities.  It can be used in face to face small group meet-ups, or can be the glue that makes a zoom/online group work really well.

Changing the world, one street at a time

Because it is a digital resource the Transition Streets Course can be tailored to your groups needs. It can be a new cover to help promote your group on social media, or to secure local funding. Or we can make major detailed changes and create additional web resources for your group, region, or special sustainability issue.

Some sample covers:
