Hello, I’m thinking of attending some training from the Transition Network in October. Just wondering how many of you are involved in Transition Towns out there?
I’ve been going to a local one now for a few months and love it- hence the step to gain training.
we are holding a viewing of the In Transisiton Film soon in Wolverhampton and hope it will inspire more locals to get involved.
So..holla if you are a transition bod, would love to know how your groups are doing and what you have planned.

For anyone who doesnt knowe what im talking about.. see http://www.transitionnetwork.org/ its inspiring stuff!!

I was involved in tryin to make my town a Transition Town a year or so ago, but it just really didn’t take off sadly :(

I love the idea of transition towns or skills exchanges. A part of our nearest city is very successful at this but nothing exists in our part of the county.

We have some involvement in our local transition group and other community projects, mostly it’s my husband especially for evening get togethers. Ours is a pretty active group with lots of different groups within it that organise lots of events and then come together regularly. They have a website if you fancy a peek at what they are up to - http://transitionsouthampton.org/

I have been involved from the sidelines for a while here, but since I had my kids I participate rather than fascilitate, would love to do more but don’t have the time.  I have held film screenings at my house which was lovely and will probably contribute more in the future when the kids are a little older.  I love the movement though so good for you!
Ours is exremely active, wish it was the same all over the uk, really think it can bring about positive change!

Much love X

just a little update!!
i went on the training and it was fantastic! really inspiring and motivating. we ran our film screening of the In Transistion 1.0 movie last week too- about 50 turned up to watch and joined in with a discussion afterwards. we are hoping our little gang of 8 will expand now into a few specific groups to approach different topics.

If anyone is interseted Rob Hopkins (daddy of transition) gave a great presentation at Sunrise Off Grid festival a few months back, that you can view on youtube;
