Please consider our coming Training For Transition Workshop. Applications are being accepted now. Last time we had a waiting list so apply now to learn how to support community-led responses to climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy while building community resilience. This is an extraordinary skills and knowledge building program. It could very much help you to help others. It has a lot to offer in that direction.

Participants will learn how to:
  • initiate a transition group in their community;
  • build awareness of peak oil, climate change and economic instability, and
  • engage citizens from all walks of life in neighbourhood or community projects.
From the practical (organizing Open Space sessions and planning awareness activities) to the theoretical (principles of resilience and theories of change), participants will leave the session better equipped to offer transition leadership in their own communities. Participants from the permaculture, environment, education and eco village fields have found real value in the workshop. Likewise, municipal staffs, elected officials, and neighbourhood associations have rated the workshop very highly. Our 2012 Workshop was SOLD OUT - so register early.

Who should come: The workshop is for anyone interested in strengthening a community-wide response to the converging trends of fossil fuel dependence, climate change and economic instability. Bring a friend or colleague from your community to support your efforts to build resilience!

Registration fee: $150; $60 for under 30's, Scholarships on application.
