compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion

EVERY INITIATIVE that results in the positive enhancement

of the evolutionary development of our species' relationship

with the universal processes of NATURE, lies the SEED of ...


"Quite often leadership can mean stepping back and 'not doing stuff'...

creating opportunities for citizenship, care and real democracy... 

empowering others towards their own solutions, ideas and projects.

Indeed that is what has been so exciting within Transition to see a host

of new leaders and people in communities creating ways forward.

IT IS about starting with the strengths and assets of communities -

then we are more likely to see how people can take control of their future

rather than relying on other people. Harnessing the skills and experience

of local people helps create sustainable change...."

Comment from Philip Booth on the POWER of Not Doing Stuff

"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which

comes within the souls of people when they realise their

relationship - their ONENESS - with the universe and all its

powers, and when they realise that at the centre of the universe

dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit), and that this centre is

really everywhere, IT IS within each of us. This is the real peace,

and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is

that which is made between two individuals, and the third is

that which is made between two nations. BUT above all you

should understand that there can never be peace between

nations until there is known that true peace, which, as I have

often said, is within the souls of men."

“Herein lies the Global knot: The seemingly irreconcilable conflict between and among the haves, the have nots, the have a little but want more, and the have a lot but are never content. There must be a better way.”  Don E. Beck

Never forgetting that [IT] was R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER who wrote the following in his exemplary plan for the future  entitled Utopia or Oblivion • Prospects for HUMANITY


“To make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone • ALL of humanity now has the option to “make it” successfully and sustainably, by virtue of our having minds, discovering principles and being able to employ these principles to do more with less”
