We are delighted to announce the four initiatives selected to host our four 2014-15 Transition Roadshows. We had 9 applications from Transition initiatives across the UK, and after much deliberation can reveal that the hosts chosen are Transition University St. Andrews, in Fife, Scotland, Transition Penwith in Cornwall, Transition Bristol in Somerset and Transition Town Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire. The exact dates and details have yet to be arranged but will be announced shortly. Our gratitude to everyone who applied, and for the time and creativity poured into all the applications. It was a very tough call.
In the meantime, we’d like to remind you about the first pilot Roadshow, taking place in less than 2 weeks in Lancaster. It’s going to be fantastic, and there are still places. It’s going to feature all sorts of stuff: workshops on personal resilience, local currencies, community energy, retrofitting homes, REconomy, local food, ‘sustainable dying’, support for Transition and communicating climate change. You’ll also be able to find out about all the wonders being created by Transition City Lancaster, hear talks and have an evening of celebration with music by Howard Haigh and The Men of the Hour. You can still book a place, come along!
We are really excited about these Roadshows. They offer a great opportunity to try a different approach to our usual annual conference (which looks set to be back for 2015 by the way), one with the potential to bring a great burst of energy to both an initiative and its surrounding region. We hope to see you at one, or more, of them.
