Mission Transition Venice is a community of like-minded people who inspire and energize our community to work together to rebuild self-reliance, reduce carbon emissions, and strengthen our economy. We do this through creative example, innovative education, and exciting actions.

By way of information and educational programs, community dialogues, and innovative projects, Transition Venice endeavors to create a thriving, cohesive community, to revitalize local agriculture, support and strengthen local economy, minimize our dependence on fossil fuels, and cultivate an inspiring new vision for the future of Venice, Florida (and neighboring villages).
