Inspiring Transition is an open community of practice of people who are concerned that we are in a global ecological emergency, and who ardently want to turn things around.

We  think that communicating to inspire thoughtful mainstream commitment to transitioning to a life-sustaining society (rather than continuing on our present course of ecological self-destruction) is essential for success.

Individuals and organisations who participate act as autonomous agents. There is no centralised command and control; nobody directs what anybody else does.

We provide ready-to-use tools to make communicating as easy as possible.

Our next milestone event is the Great Transition Communication Blitz. It will be throughout March 2017. We are engaging as many environmental/progressive groups and their members as possible to communicate through their networks about transitioning to a life-sustaining society. This way we can by pass the media and seed transformative ideas into mainstream culture without a large budget. We will have email chains, blogs, articles, lectures, social media, guerrilla marketing, workshops, business forums and focused Kitchen Table Conversations.
