There are now over 40 Transition Towns in the UK, with more joining as the idea takes off. With little proactivity at government level, communities are taking matters into their own hands and acting locally. If your town is not a Transition Town, this upbeat guide offers you the tools for starting the process. It is a process which is, as Richard Heinberg writes in his Foreword, “more like a party than a protest march”.

Interestingly yesterday I had another article brought to my attention on the impact of our environment on our mental health. One finding was that people who live in neighbourhoods which are walkable have higher wellbeing. The article in Greater Good Magazine is called Sane in the City and well worth a read... particularly if you are living in a Transition Town or any town in fact.
