Event Description

How do you engage a whole community in a transition
driven by energy descent? What are the lessons from
the Transition Town model and movement after 5
years? The workshop will be open and interactive
engaging participants in activities that set the context
for Transition and provide an overview of the model,
the movement, and Transition examples from other places in the world.
