Motivation in the transition movement (report)

In Pursuit of Transition: Some aspects of the role of passion and motivation in the Transition Movement

This paper explores participation in the Transition Movement: Is passion a strong motivator for active participation and continued involvement? Do members find that they derive satisfaction, motivation and fulfilment from Transition Initiatives? The study’s results show that an individual’s level or type of passion is not the most important contributor to continued participation in the Transition Movement. Intrinsic motivation for a high quality of life is the strongest predictor of high participation levels. Furthermore, interview findings indicate that there is no single type of person nor a single motivating factor that draws people to the Transition Movement. In fact, there may be an advantage to having a balance of interests and personality types within an Initiative to encourage diversity of ideas and active working groups.
