Transition is an invitation to explore the kind of world you would like to live in. This is often referred to as Visioning, it is a fundamental part of Transition. It is generally accepted that it is very difficult to move towards an alternative future without first recognising what that future might look like, providing something to aim for.
The idea of Transition is that as a community we can see the likely future we are heading for – it is no secret for those who choose to look – we can see what we need to do as individuals and collectively. So we choose to address challenges such as climate change and peak oil, taking appropriate action, and in doing so, we can create ways of living that are more connected and more enriching than the present.
