Transition towns are towns, cities and villages that are moving away from fossil fuel towards long-lasting and ecologically sustainable alternatives situated within a local community setting.

Transition Communities seek to develop new ideas and implement existing methods for reducing energy usage and their current reliance long supply chains that are totally dependent on fossil fuels for the creation, production and distribution of essential items. There are over one thousand registered transition towns across the world and each one is following a different path to transition, but common areas of work include transport networks, local food networks, micro-power generation, waste reduction and community gardening.
