Transition Berkeley is part of a growing international network of Transition initiatives.
We're joining cities around the world to face the enormous challenges of economic instability, climate change and fossil fuel dependency. Transition Berkeley is proud to become the 110th U.S. Initiative.
The Transition approach will help Berkeley to envision and create a future with more locally produced food and other necessities, cleaner forms of transportation and energy. Along the way, we'll build a more equitable and vibrant local economy and re-learn practical skills our grandparents once had.
Join us and discover just how powerful the collective genius can be when people work together!

Bees are responsible for one in three bites of food we eat, but they’re dying at alarming rates. A growing body of science has found the world's most widely-used insecticides, neonicotinoids (neonics), made by giant chemical companies like Bayer and Syngenta, are a leading driver of their decline. Without bees to pollinate our crops and flowering plants, our entire food system — and our fragile ecosystem itself — is at risk.
