Omstilling Ry was the first Danish Transition Town initiative to be founded. It was started in 2010 in the town of Ry. Transition inititiaves are grassroots networks of activists who work voluntarily to address the issues of climate change, peak oil and local economic resilience. The movement started in Totnes, UK in 2006 and has since spread to various countries accross the work. Various books and guides have been published to help communities set up their own Transition initiatives and an international network also exists.
Transition initiatives aim to empower communities by supporting them to take action in a range of different areas of sustainability. In the case of Omstilling Ry the members have been involved in a range of different projects and activities including the development of a forest garden and local producer market.
