Transition Days Luxembourg, an initiative from CELL – the Centre for Ecological Learning Luxembourg, is a biannual festival that aims to crowd-source solutions to help bring about a more sustainable future, part of the global Transition movement. The first edition was held in Luxembourg City in 2018 and brought together more than 50 local organisations and 1,500 participants around the topic of sustainable food production. With the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-2021 edition was transformed into a nine-month virtual event around the theme of “How to Live Together in a One Planet World?” Each month has focused on a different room in the home and the topics that connect to it, offering a full programme of online conferences and discussions, art exhibitions, podcasts, articles and weekly challenges. The event comes to a close in May and will be followed by the 2021 Transition Days Festival – more information to be released soon.
