Transition Network is creating a series of learning exchanges that will enable us all to learn from innovative and successful Transition Initiative projects and social enterprises across Europe.
We will be submitting a Grundtvig (practical learning for adults) EU grant application, with a view to the first visit; a UK/ Swedish exchange/training tour for approx 10 to 15 Swedish people to take place in May/June 2012, and a complimentary tour of Swedish projects thereafter.
A volunteer is required to prepare and submit an application for funding to Grundtvig (above).
There will be an emphasis on food projects in the UK tour e.g. could involve a trip to Grow Heathrow, Dorset Community Farm and Riverford Farm. The return trip to Sweden would look at community renewable energy projects, visiting a large scale community energy company in Sala, and bio gas production in Malmo.
The volunteer would need to commit 5-10 hours per week over 1 month to get the application submitted.
If the application is successful then the volunteer would need to follow up and help organise the tours.
