Liège en Transition, Belgium

Liège en Transition was launched by about 70 people at a meeting in 2011. They subsequently self-organised into thematic working groups that grew into a number of projects including: the Ceinture Aliment-Terre Liegéoise (CATL), a radical plan to create a sustainable food supply in the province of Liège – community supported farms are already up-and-running and the local authority has started issuing licences to grow food on the streets of Liège – and the Valeureux, Liège’s local currency, which was launched in 2014 as a way of nurturing the local economy.
