Please welcome Ratih Sutrisno, the Communications & Outreach Coordinator at Transition US, the national hub representing the Transition Movement in the United States. This is a grassroots movement and method of communities coming together to reimagine and rebuild our world. It’s based on fostering a deeper connection and acting locally to become self-sufficient and build community resilience. In this episode, we chat about:

  • What are transition towns?
  • The core principles of the Transition Network and how it went from a local movement to a global initiative
  • Tangible benefits that towns and communities have experienced by implementing these principles
  • Common obstacles when getting started and how to overcome them
  • Steps to get started in your own community!
