There now appear to be three types of initiatives emerging within the Transition Model here in the United States:
- Local Transition Initiative - embedded in its own locale where the steering group inspires and organizes the local community. This is the real heart of "Transition".
- Local Transition Hub - based within a large congruent/contiguous area with its own identity (e.g. a city or rural area). The Local Transition Hub helps establish and support "local transition initiatives" within the city or area.
- Temporary Initiating Hub - made up of a collection of acquainted individuals who work with each other to help set up "local transition initiatives" in their home communities. As the initiatives arise, the hub gradually disbands.
