Transition Bluffton is having a Launch Party!, an Idea-Raising Event with Cake! This event celebrates the creation of Transition Bluffton, an organization that is bringing people together to build sustainability in Bluffton and beyond.
The Launch Party will also serve as a brainstorming session for future events and projects. The event will be from 7-9 p.m. on May 16, 2017, on the 3rd floor of Bluffton Town Hall, 154 N. Main St.
In February 2017, some 30 people gathered in Bluffton for an official training weekend led by a certified trainer from Transition United States. The launch party will use methods learned for generating and discussing ideas, giving everyone the chance to contribute and respond.
TRANSITION TOWNS: From oil dependence to local resilience…
This event is a launch training for starting a transition town group. We welcome people from Bluffton, Ohio and beyond to join us for this inspiring weekend. Everyone will be warmly included. Financial assistance is available. Please ask questions, and let us know if you want to apply for a scholarship, have any specific food needs, or would like to be hosted in a home for the duration of the training by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we face the challenges of peak oil, climate change, and economic contraction, the Transition movement (Transition initiatives) is a positive approach that focuses on local solutions and building community resilience. Training for Transition is the popular, in-depth experiential workshop created by the global Transition Network. The course describes how to set up, run, and maintain a successful Transition initiative. It is packed with imaginative and inspiring ways to engage your community, and delves into both the theory and practice of Transition that has worked so well in hundreds of communities around the world. It meets the training criteria recommended for local initiating groups to become an internationally recognized Transition initiative.Get more information or register using the link below!
