Transition in general is great. But in our view the Transition movement itself is even greater. People need a values-based (and sometimes a selfish) reason to shift a paradigm. Too see that it’s the right thing to do for other species, our own survival and our kids’ futures; Transition lifestyles are more sustainable, human-scale and help create community; our health and happiness matter, etc. And people also need practical responses that they can apply now without having to reinvent the wheel.
