WE ARE THE TRANSITION TIME GENERATION
Humanity has entered a period of profound change. We are pushed by necessity and pulled by opportunity. The push is a growing systems crisis, evident in the breakdown of financial institutions, climate disruption, resource depletion, unsustainable population growth, and violent conflicts. The pull is the opportunity to rise to a new level of human maturity, partnership, and freedom. The combined push and pull at a global scale make this a time of profound change and transformation for humanity
Transition world is a powerful new approach to dealing with the profound challenges we face today. It’s a platform that brings together international organizations, civil society groups, business enterprises, and public institutions ready to seize the opportunity for creating a real and sustainable transition towards a more humane, equitable, and flourishing world.
Our approach is to work on 3 different levels simultaneously in order to evoke:
- Personal transformation – a new worldview that recognizes our basic interconnectedness and interdependence and promotes the flourishing of life on planet Earth in all its magnificent forms.
- Local transformation – how successful small-scale, local sustainability projects and new, evolving technologies can be made into successful mainstream initiatives.
- Global transformation – to catalyse strong and sustainable partnerships among people, communities, governments, NGO’s and businesses on a global scale.
Transition World’s member organizations are united in the realization that we need to connect, communicate, and collaborate – to share ideas and resources – if we are to be successful in co-creating viable long-term, workable solutions.
