$135 before October 1st • $155 after October 1st
The Transition movement is a set of inspiring ideas for creating an attractive and enticing vision of
how our communities could be. The converging crises of climate change and oil depletion and
economic instability cannot be solved separately, and they cannot be solved with technological
miracles, but only by lessening our dependence on fossil fuels. This doesn’t mean a bleaker future.
The heart of transition is the belief that if we engage with enough imagination and ingenuity to
unlock the collective genius of our communities, we can choose a future that is more satisfying, just
and sustainable than what we have now.
Participants in the training will:
·explore the opportunities for personal and social transformation presented by the challenges of
peak oil, climate change and economic instability
·learn the key concepts of the Transition model, including how to set up and foster successful
Transition groups., Permaculture principles and community visioning
·understand how to raise awareness of the need for transition through public talks and events
·form contacts with other change leaders in your local area
·establish a plan of action for yourself and your community
