Global Transition movement conference to come to the UK in September



Transition Movement conference

Totnes in Devon is expected to welcome hundreds of Transitioners from all over the world in September to share ideas and progress about reduction of energy consumption and waste, food growing and other core issues for the Transition Movement.

The event will take place in Totnes, Devon on September 18-20, where the Transition Movement was born in 2005. Since then, it spread to more than 1,200 communities in 47 countries, with the goal to make people’s lives more sustainable and resilient in order to adapt to current environmental challenges.

The conference will inspire, connect, train and support groups from across the world and will include a series of workshops on topics and trainings relevant to the Transition movement, such as  community energy and food growing.

Rob Hopkins, co-founder of the Transition movement said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Transition in all its forms in the place where it was born. The Transition Network has had its base in Devon for over seven years and we’re incredibly excited to be welcoming hundreds of guests from across the UK and beyond to a region which is home to a wealth of great Transition groups and projects.

“Transition is more relevant now than ever, with solutions to problems both local and global needed, not least to meet the growing threat presented by climate change. This is our chance to mark how far the Transition movement has travelled and discuss where we go next!” 

Tickets are available online on the Transition Network website with special fares for young adults and those from less wealthy nations.
