The 2010 Transition Network conference will be held in Forest Row in Sussex on the 29th, 30th and 31st May. The theme of the conference will be ‘Broadening’, taking the Transition approach wider and deeper.
It will be held in the beautiful grounds of Michael Hall school – a Steiner Waldorf school.
Forest Row is one of the earliest UK Transition initiatives and will offer a variety of accommodation styles including camping. More information, such as times, accommodation, prices, how to book and so on, will be made available soon.
Forest Row is on the edge of the Ashdown Forest. Not only is this the largest free public access space in the South East but it is home to Pooh Bear! The places mentioned in the books such as the Pooh Sticks bridge, the Enchanted Clump and Eyeore’s Sad and Gloomy Place are all real places you can visit. Another famous ex-resident of Forest Row was Prime Minister Harold Macmillan who was visited by US president J.F. Kennedy in June 1963, less than four months before he was assassinated.
The Forest Way runs through the village, which connected to the Worth Way is about 20 miles of cycle track along the old railway line between Three Bridges and Tunbridge Wells, a part of Sustrans cycle Route 21 you can download cycle maps here.
Already the storytellers, cyclists, community farms, award winning Film Society and others in the Transition Forest Row community have already started thinking about what we can offer as part of the event. We look forward to welcoming you here.
