The impacts of climate change are already tangible and real. Each day’s news brings us fresh examples of the risks to life, risks to species, risks for the planet. We feel the tension in our stomachs, feel the urgency to act, feel the overwhelm, fear the situation is too big and complex for us to solve.
This is just the right moment for us to pause, come together, and reflect on how we in Transition are doing. Let’s create some space to appreciate our glorious achievements and  courageous failures, notice what’s feeling challenging, and strengthen our connections as a global movement of communities rebuilding and reimagining our world.

In March 2019, Transition Network is working with a number of Transition Hubs to coordinate the first ever international Transition Health Check Month. Why not encourage your local Transition Group to get involved?

How to be part of this experiment.

The healthcheck is very simple to do – you just need a little preparation to be ready to complete the process in March:
  1. Download the Healthcheck here (it’s available in 15 languages so we hope there is a version that you can use!)
  2. Arrange for members of your Transition Group to get together for 3 – 4 hours some time in March 2019
  3. Agree that at least one of your group will read through the Healthcheck guide before the meeting, so they can lead the process.
That’s it!
You can apply your own style and find ways to make the event even more nourishing and fun.  Some groups have arranged a shared meal beforehand or a party afterwards. Some have chosen an interesting venue or have come together in a space where they feel connected to nature.  You may be able to find someone from outside your group who will act as a facilitator.

What is the healthcheck?

The Transition health check tool offers an opportunity to explore the essential elements of Transition and how your group relates to them.  It is not a test, but a framework to prompt useful reflection and discussion. The health check tool supports you to celebrate those things you have done well, understand better what has been challenging for your group and work out together how best to move forward.
Groups that have carried out the health check have found it a helpful and reinvigorating exercise. Here are a couple of quotes from people who have tried it for themselves:

“Any group gets complacent.  This is a great way to measure our strengths and weaknesses.”

“I feel that this has really helped to evaluate, re-focus and energise our group with a renewed sense of purpose.”

Here is a short video in English explaining the health check and how it is used:

Once you have done the health check, there is a range of support resources available to help you to further develop Transition in your community.

A global picture

Transition Network is developing a new platform where Transition Groups will upload their health check scores.  As this starts to be used, it will give us all more of an overview of how the Transition Movement is doing. The data can inform the future development of resources, training and much more.

It’s not easy to maintain an accurate picture of the spread and activity of the international Transition movement and this often means we are underestimated by decision-makers, funders, the media and others.  Transition Network hopes that the new platform will make it as easy and useful as possible for individual Transition Groups to provide feedback about where they are and their current state of health. Let’s make our movement more visible and explore its potential together!

We will be posting further information on transition network in the days leading up to International Transition Health check Month.  Then on 1 March, we will launch the process and provide more guidance about how you can share the results from your group.We hope you will join us in this exciting international experiment.  If you are a Facebook User, please register your interest here [Health Check Month event page] so we can build up a picture of who is participating.
