This paper is the result of a workshop delivered by the authors at the National Development Team for Inclusion's 2009 conference. It examines the role of older people within the transition towns movement and suggests that the skills and knowledge that many older people possess are vital to the changes that must be made as we seek more sustainable lifestyles.The paper presents a variety of current projects where older people have been integral to teaching skills to younger generations. It outlines the suggestions that delegates at the workshop put forward and invites practitioners working with older people to consider the potential for their further involvement in transition initiatives.
