We are a community group working to inspire a strong and healthy future for our neighbourhoods in the face of climate change and the end of cheap oil.

When we use the term "Transition" we’re talking about the changes we need to make to get to a low-carbon, socially-just, healthier and happier future, which is more enriching and more gentle on the earth than the way most of us live today.

We are part of a growing international movement with a positive vision for a localised future. THB is part of the Transition Network.

Since Feb 2016 we have started having our monthly catch ups at 7pm on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Hobsons Bay Yacht Club - please some along and meet with like minded community members, be inspired, share and grow with this growing movement of change and resilience.
