We are delighted to announce that after a couple of years with no Transition Network conference, it’s back, and it’s going to be a remarkable couple of days. It will take place at the wonderful Seale Hayne, close to Totnes in Devon, where we held the 2010 conference between 18-20 September 2015. This year’s conference will be a celebration of the truly international thing that Transition has become. Either side of it we are currently designing fringe events, trainings, tours and other things so you can make the most of your time. Tickets will go on sale in April.
The Conference is very much coming off the back of the International Permaculture Convergence that is occurring in Essex and which finishes just days before our own event. Around 150 delegates are expected to descend on Devon direct from the IPC as part of a tour organised by Transition Town Totnes which in turn leads into our conference. With so many International guests in the country anyway, and the National Hubs Gathering also planned to occur around this time in the UK, it seems appropriate that this year’s conference will really focus in on the unfolding Global Story of Transition.
For now though, we would love to hear from you a sense of the workshops you’d like to see on offer there and how you may contribute, particularly as part of the Friday Fringe events. We are looking to offer day-longs Transition Skills workshops over this day and welcome offers for this. Please send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be great food, there will be music and dancing, there will be a deep, rich, rejuvenating, reconnecting occasion where you’ll meet Transition folks from all over and have a chance to learn from one another. Keep an eye on the website for details, but for now, pop that date in your diary. We can’t wait!
