The Transition Towns concept is a grassroots, community-led model for making the change to a low carbon future.
The message is: if we design the future rather than letting it happen to us, we can make it better.
All the signs are that it is a project that works and it's spreading like a virus throughout the UK.
Last week Climate Radio went along to the inaugural conference for the newly formed Transition Network - a charity set up to support the towns, cities, islands, villages and boroughs that are either in process of transition or are considering it. In the beautiful setting of Ruskin Mill near Stroud, we took some of the participants aside to find out what was happening in their area. This is just a snapshot of the many and diverse projects now underway.
Naresh Giangrande - Totnes Energy group co-ordinator - pioneering community owned, large-scale renewable energy resources and bulk buying of domestic solar water heating
Nick Weir - Transition Stroud food group member - pioneering community supported agriculture projects, communal allotments, food co-ops, and a new legal model - the Community Farm Land Trust
Dr Pamela Gray - Transition Penwith Medicine group co-ordinator - asking how will we provide healthcare in a post-oil world?
Jo Hamilton - from Oxford Climate Exchange http://climatex.org/ - a dynamic project connecting all the climate change resources in Oxfordshire and aiming to engage all sections of the population
