We advocate an organizational model where small groups with no central leader work in a cooperative fashion supporting each other’s projects. The role of a Transition Initiative is to raise the awareness and profile of projects and to build interest in the principles and concepts of Transition as a whole. Within this model, we need to be careful that the integrity of the ‘brand’ is preserved and it is recommended that new projects submit an outline of their proposal to the group for endorsement.
The scale of projects should be local in scale, such as a small town, municipality or neighbourhood. Because we interface with local politics, it is a good idea to consider the existing political boundaries when considering the scope of your project.
