Sunshine Coast in Transition

Transition Connection for the Sunshine Coast of BC, Canada

Welcome to Sunshine Coast in Transition

 

The Sunshine Coast in Transition (SCiT) website is intended as a hub for local activities relating to the global Transition Network. It is our hope that this growing movement, through this website and numerous activities on the Sunshine Coast, will help to bring together everyone on the Sunshine Coast who feels inspired to envision and create a positive future for our community — and to have fun doing it!!

Check the About page for a brief overview of our local initiative to date: the mission, goals and purpose as defined by our initiating group. Visit the Transition 101 page for a brief introduction to the global Transition Network, and visit our other pages (currently under development) to learn more about activities and events that are taking place within our community, as organized by either the Transition team or one of the many local groups who are focused on sustainability and resilience.

Check back often over the next while, and please let us know how we can improve the site.  Are we missing something important that is going on in our community?!

She guides and supports groups and individuals to work through the processes and relationships involved in the transition of peoples lives and involvement in the Transition movement.

People in Need
With a world in turmoil there is mass migration of refugees out of areas without safety and support for their populations. Thousands each day make their way to other countries like Greece and Germany, seeking to create a new life for themselves and their families. Here Sophy Banks shares perspectives from Transition about populations of great need. Sophy Banks is one of the co-founders of the “Heart and Soul” group of Transition Town Totnes, which addresses the psychological and spiritual dimensions of Transition.
