Réseau Transition is the French-speaking Belgian hub of the Transition Network, created by Rob Hopkins.
Its mission is to inspire, encourage, connect, support and train communities as they self-organize around the Transition model, creating initiatives that reimagine and rebuild our world. Ultimately it’s about creating a healthy human culture, one that meets our needs for community, livelihoods and fun. The team offers direct support to the local initiatives, and also runs events, conferences, training courses, blogs and webinars.
Systemic psychologist & team member of Réseau Transition
“Resilience and reliance, closely related, are at the heart of Transition. Reliance on oneself, on others, and on nature. A personal, community, territorial, global resilience. A human anchoring – fed by a holistic thought, based on a positive vision, cultivating pleasure and joy – which is necessarily created by projects that support a fair and equitable society. Local communities that are self-managed need to work on the capacities to cooperate. The anchoring of all living beings in nature is both a prerequisite and a purpose to make the current metamorphosis succeed.”
