We share skills, experience, practical know-how, dreams and visions, and support and encourage each others' work.
We focus on local food, energy and economy.
We rely on our communities, each other, mentors, skilled resource people and the many "fellow travellers" who share a similar vision of social and environmental justice.
Two participants represented Hungary in the National Hubs' meeting in Copenhagen in September, 2014 and Hub for Transition Hungary signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Transition Network by the end of 2014.
Our "HUB" is the Small Communities in Transition Support Group:
this 'holds the centre', developing space and resources for a mutual aid network to develop which will support a long-term Transition Process in Hungary. A legal framework is provided for this by Védegylet - Protect the Future, an established NGO working to strengthen grassroots movements. Two Transition Trainers are involved in the Transition Support Group.

Small Communities in Transition

This work is led by Védegylet in partnership with Profilantrop, pioneers in low-tech solutions with low-income communities. It is financed from 2013-15 by the NGO Fund of the EEA/Norway Grants. Description of communities is coming soon...
