Transition in Practice - a two week in depth exploration of the process of change.
This two week course looks at the Transition experiment through stories and models of change. What is the transition that is needed at this time? What supports engagement and shift in behaviour, for individuals, organisations and communities? What stories do we know of other cultures that have made the transition to a peaceful, inclusive and sustainable way of living? And what is it about Transition that has created such a widespread engagement around changing how we live?
This two week course will be conducted at Schumacher College and in Totnes, the home of the first Transition Town. We will be visiting some of the award winning projects that have emerged out of Transition Town Totnes. This course will be taught by the originators of the Transition Town model, and will be an opportunity to immerse yourself in an in depth exploration of the theory and practice of transition.
