New from Green Books
Bee West from Green Books gives us the heads up on what’s new from the publishers of the Transition Handbook, Transition Timeline and now Local Money by Peter North.
Transition into business
Here, we hear from Tony Greenham of Transition Town Totnes and Graham Truscott of Transition Derby whose workshop looks at how businesses and many other types of organisation are incredibly influential forces in today’s “cheap oil” society and economy.
Their session explores the role of businesses in Transition, and the role of Transition Initiatives (TIs) and Transition Training and Consulting (TTandC) in assisting businesses and organisations to adapt to the low carbon, energy-constrained future. It also includes an update on the latest TTandC services and experiences so far, and will identify opportunities for you and your TIs to engage positively with the organisations and businesses that most influence your community’s ability to develop resilience and sustainability.
