David Holmgren:  "People, their buildings and the ways they organize themselves are central to permaculture."

The phenomenon called Transition was hatched in the UK and for several years has been spreading around the world.  Transition is possible, transition is probable and nearly inevitable.

  • Transition Network (UK) site, on which appear Rob Hopkins' new blogs
  • Transition Culture (Rob Hopkins') original (archival) site
  • Transition US site (official)
  • Transition in Action site (Global & unofficial, but sometimes lively.  Here you can find links to similar sites dedicated to particular states, territories....)
