A SHARED PLAN

HOW DOES THE CAMPAIGN WORK?

The Transition Decade was launched on the 14th February 2010.

The Transition Decade presents a different approach that recognises the full scale, scope and speed of change necessary to match the climate emergency.

The Transition Decade creates a campaign platform and a shared timeline for action for the next ten years.

WHO IS THE CAMPAIGN FOR?

The Transition Decade has emerged from the Victorian sustainability movement and is reaching people all over Australia.

The Transition Decade aspires to mobilise whole communities through a communication and partnership strategy for individuals, community organisations, business and government in geographic localities. The campaign will link local, regional, national and international programs, campaigns and resources to help inform and activate citizens across Australia.

WHO'S INVOLVED?

The Transition Decade is a non-partisan shared campaign which is coordinated by an alliance of groups. Groups guiding the campaign include: Sustainable Living Foundation, Beyond Zero Emissions, the Climate Emergency Network and Friends of the Earth Australia.

WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?

The Transition Decade integrates this work to strengthen resources and to connect movements that are influencing policy and local action.
