Transition is a community organizing response to climate change, resource depletion and financial instability. There are 1,100+ Transition groups in 44 countries and over 150 initiatives in the US. It starts with a series of small group meetings in which neighbors go through chapters of a Field Guide. They strengthen their sense of place, build relationships, promote local food, and map their neighborhood’s current state of resiliency.

NYC Transition Neighborhoods Initiatives brings friends and neighbors together to discover and map “resilience assets” that are hidden in plain sight, right in our neighborhoods! A thought provoking Transition Neighborhood Field Guide leads participants on a practical and enlightening neighborhood resilience-building adventure that deepens and celebrates neighborhood culture. Let’s get the party started!
