Event Description

TRANSITION IN VANCOUVER workshop this weekend

The Permaculture-inspired Transition Town movement was initiated over five years ago in Totnes, UK so citizens could take action and adapt their lives to peak oil and climate change, and now, increasing economic instability. The movement has spread very quickly around the globe.

Join leaders of the transition movement in Vancouver for a 2-day workshop and dialogue introducing the principles, steps and lessons of the successful Transition Town model of local response to global challenges, and engage in generating positive, tangible responses based on collaborative efforts and community self-reliance.

The workshop will be led by sustainability/resiliency educator and certified Transition Trainer Lena Soots, with additional facilitation from Village founder/convenor Ross Moster.

Lena Soots is an educator and facilitator working with communities to build resilience and create sustainable futures. She is a Research Associate and Instructor at the Centre for Sustainable Community Development at Simon Fraser University and a PhD Candidate in the Faculty of Education. She is a certified Transition Trainer.
