Welcome to Transition Massachusetts!

Transition Massachusetts is an informal network where members inspire, support, and learn from each other as they consider, adopt, adapt and implement Transition Initiatives in their communities.


The Transition approach is a replicable, flexible methodology that empowers communities to squarely face the challenges of peak oil, climate change, and economic instability, and to unleash the collective genius of their own people to find the answers to this momentous question:

For all those aspects of life that this community needs in order to sustain itself and thrive, how are we going to:

· drastically reduce carbon emissions (in response to climate change);
· significantly rebuild resilience (in response to peak oil);
· and greatly strengthen our local economy (in response to economic instability)?

Transition Initiatives make no claim to have all the answers, but by building on the wisdom of the past and accessing the pool of ingenuity, skills and determination in our communities, the solutions can readily emerge. Now is the time for us to take stock and start re-creating our future in ways that are not based on cheap, plentiful and polluting oil but on localized food, sustainable energy sources, resilient local economies and an enlivened sense of community well-being.

For more information on what Transition Initiatives are and how they work, click here, and here. See The Transition Handbook by Rob Hopkins for a complete and inspiring treatment by the Transition movement's founder.
