Among the main partners involved in the organizations activities are: The Club of Budapest, Chora Connection, 17Goals  and The Goi Peace Foundation. 

Mission and Objectives: 

Transition world is a powerful new approach to dealing with the profound challenges we face today. It’s a platform that brings together international organizations, civil society groups, business enterprises, and public institutions ready to seize the opportunity for creating a real and sustainable transition towards a more humane, equitable, and flourishing world.

Our approach is to work on 3 different levels simultaneously in order to evoke:

1) Personal transformation – promoting a new worldview that recognizes our basic interconnectedness and interdependence and promotes the flourishing of life on planet Earth in all its magnificent forms.

2) Local transformation – developing successful small-scale, local sustainability projects and new, evolving technologies that can be made into successful mainstream initiatives.

3) Global transformation – catalysing strong and sustainable partnerships among people, communities, governments, NGO’s and businesses on a global scale.

Our collaborating partners are united in the realization that we need to connect, communicate, and collaborate – to share ideas and resources – if we are to be successful in co-creating viable long-term, workable solutions.

Main Projects / Activities: 

Transition World has in the past year produced one local and two international events -  including our launch event at Kronborg Castle in May last year. Highlights from the launch event can be screened on this link: http://transitionworld.org/videos/

The organization is presently involved in the development of several new educational initiatives in collaboration with national and international partners and we are planning a high profile international event in connection with the International Peace Day on 21 September 2016. (See the attached introduction)
