What are you transitioning to?

Transitioning to a Sustainable Future

After the historic climate accord in Paris, people are looking for ways they can take action and make a difference. In Transition groups across the Twin Cities, neighbors are coming together to create more resilient communities and a more sustainable future by:

Transition thinks global and acts local

Transition US and the global Transition network have engaged hundreds of thousands of people in community action across the planet — people of all ages, races, religions and income levels. The challenge of climate change will affect us all. By working together we can help to shape our shared future and provide support for one another as we face the changes ahead.

Connect to a Transition group in your area

Check out the Twin Cities Transition groups listed on this website. Find the one nearest you, visit a meeting, participate in an activity, join their Facebook group.

If there is no group in your neighborhood, feel free to attend one in another community. Most Transition group activities are open to the public.

Better yet, start a group in your part of town. It’s easy. Contact the Transition Twin Cities organizer and share your name, email and neighborhood. When there are four people in your area who also want to start a group,  we'll connect you together and provide resources to help you get started.

Plan to attend first ever Transition National Gathering. We expect community resilience builders from across the country to come together to deepen our relationships with each other, broaden our knowledge of practical solutions, and scale-up strategies to bring our shared vision of healthy, sustainable, and just local communities to life throughout the US.

Visit the Transition Gathering website for a complete list of workshops (there are 45!) and to register.

This Gathering welcomes people who are not currently part of a Transition group, but who are doing work in community. There are many workshops to help volunteer groups become stronger and more effective, deal with conflict, and expand their network. People who may find this Gathering useful and inspiring include:

  • Green team members
  • Creation care teams
  • Neighborhood environment committees
  • Groups working to influence city and state government
  • Food activists, renewable energy activists
  • People with a passion for improving the sustainability of our communities
