Our vision is of a world where people live in peace, consciousness of their common humanity and their shared responsibilities for each other, for the planet and for future generations.
The Transition is comprised of vibrant BUD Teams, Intentional Communities, Co-op Businesses and grassroots community initiatives and events that seek to build community resilience in the face of the challenging times we are now experiencing.
- Degradation of the biosphere
- Malaise of the Economic System
- Decline in Human Health
- Growth in Global Poverty and often Subsequent Inequality
These issues are real problems we now face. It is through our programming targeted at our overall vision that we seek to mitigate these converging global crises by engaging our communities on the local level, with citizen-led education, action, and multi-stakeholder planning to increase local self reliance and resilience that creates global impact. Every community across the globe is capable of engaging its collective creativity to unleash an extraordinary and historic transition to a future beyond:
- Fossil fuels
- Technological Unemployment
- Factory Farming
Together we can create a future that is more vibrant, abundant and resilient; one that is ultimately preferable to the present.
