At the Transition Gathering I felt my voice was heard. This is greatly encouraging for other young people hoping to transition their lives and communities, but are unsure how to begin. Knowing that the broad Transition movement has time and space for our ideas is critical to us all moving ahead.

Immediately following our main conference, Transition US held a leadership retreat and movement strategy session for 34 experienced Transition and community resilience leaders on Monday, July 31st and Tuesday, August 1st at Walker Community United Methodist Church in Minneapolis. Together, we reflected on our successes and challenges, grappled with some of the biggest issues facing our movement today, and collaborated to broaden, deepen, and scale-up the Transition Movement throughout the US.
