A Transition Town is a place where there's a community-led process that helps that town/village/city/neighbourhood become stronger and happier.
It's the opposite of us sitting in our armchairs complaining about what's wrong, and instead, it's about getting up and doing something constructive about it alongside our neighbours and fellow townsfolk.
People say that as a result of being involved in their local "transition initiative", they're happier, their community feels more robust and they have made a lot of new friends.
"Rob Hopkins has done more to change the way that we live in the past 10 years than any one else in Britain. because he has given people the tools to create change for themselves. It is beautifully simple and incredibly powerful." Monty Don, gardener, writer and broadcaster
