Just in case you were under the impression that Transition is a process defined by people who have all the answers, you need to be aware of a key fact.
We truly don’t know if this will work. Transition is a social experiment on a massive scale.
What we are convinced of is this:
- If we sit around and wait for governments to fix everything, it’ll be too little, too late.
- If we only act as individuals, it’ll be too little.
- But if we act as communities now–which will likely spark governmental and individual action as well–it might just be enough, just in time.
Everything that you read on this site is the result of real work undertaken in the real world with community engagement at its heart. This site, just like the transition model, is brought to you by people who are actively engaged in transition in a community. People who are learning by doing – and learning all the time. People who understand that we can’t sit back and wait for someone else to do the work. People like us.
We believe that Quakers have much to offer and much to learn by participating in this needed and growing movement.
