There is no shortage of bad news, but what about the untold stories of hope, positive action, and opportunity? This weekend will be packed with ways for you to create thriving, prosperous relocalised economies along with the skills for doing to enable it to happen. These two days are an inspiration and practical immersion in the culture of transition we are in. Whatever your interest, whatever your passion, this training is designed to help you through the difficult bits, and to build positive ways forward. Click here for more information.
You will meet others who are facing similar challenges. The training will embody the Transition movement’s spirit of co-creation in a wide ranging exploration of what has been achieved and what is now possible. We will be specifically looking at how to sustain momentum in your Transition Initiative and personally, how to get more people involved, and how to translate that involvement into active engagement. We hope to see you there!
Trainers: The training will be facilitated by Naresh Giangrande, co-founder of Transition Town Totnes and Transition Training, and Mandy Dean, who has been a teacher and trainer for over 15 years and has worked in sustainable land use research, horticulture, vocational training and is also qualified as a medical herbalist.
Costs: We are trying out a new financing model, inspired by the “Gift Economy” and Transition Portugal. All we ask for is a payment of £40 prior to the course (as a deposit). The actual full costs of the training weekend is around £105 (depending on number of participants), but we leave it up to each participant to decide after the course, if and how much they can afford or want to contribute to this course as a way of gratitude and support of its continuity in the future.
Where & When: The venue will be Birdwood House, in the heart of Totnes, about 10 minutes walk from Totnes Railway station. Dates: Saturday, 16 June to Sunday, 17 June 2012 from 9:30am-5:00pm
