How find your next steps or rebuild a faltering Transition Group.
Already Set Up a Transition Initiative? Do You Want Help to Take your Next Steps? This two day workshop will help you to Thrive.
We know it’s not easy “Transitioning”. But we also know that it’s one of the most rewarding things anyone can do in these changing times. Using our specially designed Health Check we explore together what has been done well, what can be improved and how each person can move forward.
“Jam-packed with deep experiences.” participant from Thrive Training, St Andrews, Scotland.
We find many common themes that people bring to this training:
- “Inspiring more people to get involved is not always easy”
- “We could do more if we got the funding we need”
- “Wouldn’t it be great to revitalise our local, economy… but how to start?”
- “What inspiring examples of ‘Transition’ enterprises that we need in our place?”
- “Could we be more effective with our communication?”
- “Our groups are less effective than they might be”
- “Many of us are feeling burnt out, how can we recharge our batteries?”
“This was a great experience both personally and for our Transition movement.” Participant, Thrive Training, St Andrews, Scotland.
This training opens new ways of living and working for you personally, and has reignited many Transition Initiatives.
While each Thrive course is unique, as it is co-created by the facilitation team and participants, sustaining momentum in your Transition group is often a key topic. Each person can learn specific and attainable ways to either get their Transition group back on its feet or onto the next level.
“The course was great for the development of our Transition project as well as my personal development. It provided a useful forum to develop our Transition project while at the same time providing time for reflection.” Participant, Thrive Training, St Andrews, Scotland.
As trainers we often hear the that the ability to increase resources coming into the project – both time and money, and the ability of you personally to sustain your ability to do this work, were key barriers to sustaining momentum in Transition group. Transition THRIVE specifically addresses these issues and is designed to help you create a plan that is right for you and your initiative, and to help you achieve the next level of Transition in your community.

Transition THRIVE overview
We have developed an easy, practical tool, the Health Check, to help you find the successes, gaps, and challenges in your Transition group. You can read a blog post about it here.hyperlink
The course is set out as a menu of possibilities that are dependent on the needs of each group, so the content changes for each course. Our intention is to make the time we spend as valuable and relevant to each participant as possible, and to tailor the areas we cover to the needs of the group that come. The areas that are typically covered are how to:
- Reach out to the concerned but not yet involved
- Fund your initiative
- Create jobs and new enterprises in a local, green economy
- Develop effective communication strategies
- Find ways to maintain your personal resilience
We will be exploring what works and what doesn’t for other Transition groups. As always in Transition Trainings, we will be weaving together theory and practice, information and experiential learning, and flexibility within a structured approach .
