about MiT

The Municipalities in Transition project is managed internally using an innovative form of governance based on sociocracy and organised in “circles”.

The project is led by a “core circle” of four members, who receive feedback and support from a “support circle” composed of volunteer members from the Transition Hubs group and Transition Network.

Decisions will be made by consent (instead of consensus), and specific feedback will be asked through an “advice process” with different members of the supporting circles. This way, decision-making is based on relationships of trust, and processes are more agile and capable of integrating different points of view.
