A review by Tierney Smith from Responding to Climate Change.
Fruit and vegetables growing in a tube station in Kilburn, an ex-double glazing sales man going door-to-door in Moss Side, a young boy selling salad on the side of the road in Pittsburgh and elderly people teaching the young to plough in a small village in Italy. Each of these stories seem so small, even irrelevant, on their own but together they are part of a much larger story.
One of a movement which is getting people and communities to re-think and re-design the way they live. This is the story of Transition 2:0 – and a new film by that name has just been launched to celebrate this quintessential grassroots movement.
Here is the first Sneak Peek from ‘In Transition 2.0′.
On May 13th more than 15 German, Austrian & Swiss Transition initiatives (from small towns to large cities; from Lübnitz to Bielefeld to Bremen to Zurich to Regensburg to Munich to Hanover to…) self-organized a screening of “In Transition 2.0″; with audience numbers ranging from a living-room-cozy (5 people) to packed cinemas of about 100. Reviews were overwhelmingly positive and most viewers particulary liked the international scope, breadth & depth of the projects appearing in the movie.
Here are some short films, filmed on a mobile phone, of the reactions of people after seeing ‘In Transition 2.0′ at its Finsbury Park preview.

A few weeks ago, Transition Network’s Rob Hopkins travelled to Brockwood Park, a very progressive school in Hampshire, to give a talk about Transition. It was the first talk he has have given that included clips from ‘In Transition 2.0′, which went down very well. Thanks to everyone who made it such an enjoyable visit. A few days after the talk, they held their first Open Space to explore what becoming a Transition school would entail.
