How to change the world, one street at a time;
A sustainability program for local neighbourhoods in Australia
Transition Streets is a community based program where residents are encourage to live more sustainably. An organiser will gather a group of local residents and host workshops with challenges from the Transition Streets workbook which has ideas and practical examples of sustainable lifestyle changes that we can all do right now. The workbook is easy to follow and aims to encourage co-operation and creativity.
The Transition movement (originally called Transition Towns) began in Totnes, UK in 2006. There are now hundreds of Transition groups around the globe, exploring local strategies for building low carbon, resilient communities able to respond to the challenges of climate change, resource depletion and environmental degradation.
We hope that through Transition Streets you will develop relationships within your immediate neighbourhood that will help you explore and respond to some of the significant environmental challenges before us. Whilst we face an uncertain future, we also have the opportunity to think about the type of community we want to live in and to start creating an alternative vision now.
