Transition Sunshine Coast "This exciting permaculture community movement is inspiring people to stand up, get together and create the future they want.

It works because it provides the tools and skills to make that happen.

It works because it's about cooperation and collaboration.

It works because it enables and supports people to do what they are passionate about and what they feel called to do. It's about community action in our quest to move from fossil fuel dependency to local resilience."
