Oral history project

International Oral History of the Transition Movement : Wellington

In 2022, the Oral History Society launched a project to document and record interviews with people all over the world who have been involved with the Transition Movement. This is a key project for the OHS special interest group on Environment and Climate Change.

For the pilot project, four regions have been selected: France, the US, Sweden and Norway, and the UK.

TTW is delighted that our community has been selected to pioneer this new project in the UK, starting with a 2-day training day for volunteers in Feb 2024.

Why?

– The Transition movement is an important actor in the struggle to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and reduce local and global inequalities

– To encourage and inspire local activism, and improve people’s mental health

– To capture the real, personal stories that lie at the heart of Transition

– To reflect and build on the principles of the movement itself

– No oral history of the Transition Movement exists

Are you interested in oral history?

Would you like to improve your interviewing skills? Are you curious about other people’s lives and thoughts and how to capture them for the future?

TTW has been selected to pioneer this new project in the UK joining four pilots from France, the US, Sweden and Norway, as part of the International Oral History of the Transition Movement project run by the Oral History Society (OHS) in the UK.

We are looking for keen volunteers from our community to help us record and document people’s life stories in their own words, particularly how they have been involved in helping the environment.
