Transition Initiative Introductory Workshop
Transition Town Media (PA) will conduct a two-day launch of their workshop, Training for Transition!" on May 20 and 21, at Media Providence Friends School. With challenges of economic instability, energy choices, equity, fairness, unpredictable weather and environmental health, the global Transition movement is a positive approach that focuses on local solutions and building community resilience.
Their mission is reclaiming the economy, sparking entrepreneurship, reimagining work, reskilling themselves and weaving webs of connection and support. It’s an approach that has spread to more than 50 countries, in thousands of groups. The Alliance for Sustainable Communities, Lehigh Valley, is a Transitions hub and Certified Transition trainers Tina Clarke and Fred Brown will share experiences from the U.S. and around the world.
The popular, in-depth experiential Transition Launch workshop was created by the global Transition Network. The course which teaches participants how to launch, run and grow a successful Transition initiative, is packed with imaginative and inspiring ways to engage the community, and delves into both the theory and practice of Transition that has worked so well in hundreds of communities around the world. It also meets the training criteria recommended for local Initiating groups to become an internationally recognized Transition Initiative.
