Transition survey results

The key findings of the Transition Groups survey are:

Establishing Transition groups and maintaining momentum are big achievements for volunteer community activists, and managing the dynamics of voluntary groups is not a trivial issue. Support and training in group management and conflict resolution would be a welcome addition to the training available;

There is a limit to how much support or interest can be gained using awareness-raising strategies as a starting point. Attracting people to join in practical projects might be a more effective way of building community engagement;

Transition initiatives struggle to achieve a lot, with limited resources, and would benefit from funding (financial or in kind) from other organisations to support their activities. Many have links with local government and there is clearly a role here for local councils to support (not direct or lead) Transition initiatives in their work;

Food and gardening projects are far and away the most popular practical ways for Transition initiatives to start engaging people in hands-on action. Local councils could promote these activities by offering more land for allotments and community gardens, as a first step to wider community engagement in sustainable development.
