The Transition Movement is a vibrant, grassroots movement that seeks to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. It represents one of the most promising ways of engaging people in strengthening their communities against the effects of these challenges, resulting in a life that is more abundant, fulfilling, equitable and socially connected.

Climate Justice Alliance (CJA) http://www.ourpowercampaign.org
A collaborative of over 35 community-based and movement support organizations uniting frontline communities to forge a scalable, and socio-economically just transition away from unsustainable energy towards local living economies to address the root causes of climate change.

Movement Generation Justice and Ecology Project (MG) http://movementgeneration.org
Inspires and engages in transformative action towards the liberation and restoration of land, labor, and culture. MG is rooted in vibrant social movements led by low-income communities and communities of color committed to a Just Transition away from profit and pollution and towards healthy, resilient and life-affirming local economies.

Assists societies in their efforts to relocalize communities and adapt to an energy constrained world.

Resilience.org http://www.resilience.org
Both an information clearinghouse and a network of action-oriented groups with a focus on building community resilience in a world of multiple emerging challenges: the decline of cheap energy, the depletion of critical resources like water, complex environmental crises like climate change and biodiversity loss, and the social and economic issues which are linked to these.

La Via Campesina http://viacampesina.org/en
The international movement that brings together millions of peasants, small and medium-size farmers, landless people, women farmers, indigenous people, migrants and agricultural workers from around the world and defends small-scale sustainable agriculture as a way to promote social justice and dignity.

THE SEQUEL looks at the influential work of David Fleming, who dared to re-imagine a thriving civilization after the collapse of our current mainstream economies and inspired the Transition Towns movement.

Read MORE about THE SEQUEL

"A how-to for our communities, for ourselves, for you and me to re-envision and recreate our homes and communities. Rather than merely examining the fissures in our global wellbeing, this movie teaches us a way forward, a way to repair together, a communal way home."
Sean Prentiss, Associate Professor of English, Norwich University, Author, Finding Abbey: The Search for Edward Abbey and His Hidden Desert Grave

 

"Explores the work of environmental economist David Fleming and the vibrant Transition Movement his ideas inspired. A valuable supplement for...local groups reading Fleming's work. Reminding us that our post-industrial socioeconomic systems are finite and that other ways of living are not only possible but inevitable, THE SEQUEL is a sure catalyst to discussion and action."
Dr. Anna J. Willow, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Ohio State University

 

"I highly recommend The Sequel...Through two decades of work on climate issues, I've come to appreciate that our challenges are less political and technological than we imagine them to be. Rather, our core challenges are relational and social - of how we can come to understand ourselves as connected to community across scales from local to global. An inspirational and particularly useful touchstone for those thinking about and seeking to secure a just, sustainable and resilient future for all."
Steve Adams, Director of Urban Resilience, Institute for Sustainable Communities

 

"A helpful reminder that alternatives exist all around us. Fleming knew that healthy human societies and healthy relationships to the non-human world required intentional community building acts. Grow a garden, get involved in local politics, share tools with your neighbor, fix what's broken and buy less stuff. This is an inspirational film for audiences of all ages."
Dr. Kent 'Kip' Curtis, Associate Professor of Environmental History, Ohio State University

 

"The late English historian and ecological theorist David Fleming argues that global capitalism's need for constant consumption and growth is destroying the world - it consumes too many resources, spews out too many wastes, and pushes too many people into poverty and despair. Fleming thinks climate change will trigger what he calls 'climacteric collapse' of large-scale societies. This unfolding collapse offers the possibility of a counter-cultural renaissance if we transition to more locally-oriented and nature-focused ways of life."
James William Gibson, Professor of Sociology, California State University - Long Beach, Author, A Reenchanted World: The Quest for a New Kinship With Nature

 

"An essential introduction to David Fleming's work that can help us all imagine, as he did, the beauty and potential of the 'seed beneath the snow.' Without ignoring the seriousness of the crises, Fleming's work demonstrates that through imagination, art, culture, ritual, and joy, there is a way forward. And that way forward won't be a sacrifice, but rather a reestablishment of the very communities, rituals, and practices we have lost in modernity, that before this moment have always given human life its meaning."
Dr. David Thomas Sumner, Professor of English and Environmental Studies, English Department Chair, Linfield College

 

"An excellent documentary tribute with wings that takes us to local food movements, repair cafés, and community celebrations to liven up The Sequel to the biophysical impossibility of endless growth. This film will awaken the intellect to harmonize with earth's systems...We find a treasure trove of ecological and humanitarian analysis and practices that call upon our higher selves to work for the good of all life."
Jim Merkel, Author, Radical Simplicity: Small Footprints on a Finite Earth, Director, Global Living Project, Film Director, Saving Walden's World
