Transition Port Gardner Presents – TRAINING for TRANSITION

October 3, 2012

Transition Training

The Transition movement is a global network of hundreds of communities in 34 countries–a free, voluntary network of people taking positive, creative action to build community resilience. As we face growing economic instability, rising energy costs and problems, worsening social inequity, and environmental crisis, the Transition model offers a positive, thoughtful, fun and effective way to respond and improve our quality of life.

On October 13-14, 2012 at 3231 Creatives, 3231 Broadway Ave in Everett, Transition Port Gardner is collaborating with Transition U.S. to offer this Training for Transition course developed in Great Britain by the Transition Network and taught around the world. This participatory, 15-hour course is an in-depth experiential introduction to the ideas, process and practices that have inspired tens of thousands of people and catalyzed a rapidly-growing global network.

At the Training you will:

  • Explore ways to increase community resilience
  • Learn to describe the challenges of Peak Oil, climate change, and economic instability in ways that bring people together and inspire action
  • Receive tools for community outreach, education and creating shared vision
  • Learn ways to work with obstacles that have prevented our communities from responding to the challenges
  • Learn how to facilitate community collaboration — supporting existing leadership and expanding the number and diversity of people involved
  • Meet others in your region who share your concerns and want to transition to greater stability and security
  • Become a part of a rapidly growing positive, inspirational, global movement!

Who should attend? People interested in learning ways to transition their community to greater resilience and sustainability, and people already creating a Transition Initiative who want to network and deepen their work.
