On behalf of Naresh.
After a 3 year gap since our last event at Battersea Arts Centre, the 2015 gathering will bring together delegates from across the worldwide Transition Movement, connecting National Hubs with local Initiatives and celebrating the wonderful achievements and work that have been occurring since we began this journey back in 2006. Our intention for this event is to make an affordable, accessible and inclusive international event that embraces the diversity of those involved in this network.
We’re delighted to be returning to the home of our 2010 Conference, the beautiful Seale-Hayne in Devon. We’re currently designing Fringe events, Trainings, Tours and other fun and fabulous things for what will be a really remarkable few days in Devon:
- Main Transition International Conference: Friday 18th September (6pm) to Sunday 20th September (5pm)
- Transition Skills Day: Friday 18th September (10am - 5pm)
- National Hubs Gathering: Thursday 17th September - Tuesday 22nd September
- 1 Year in Transition Youth Gathering: Thursday 17th September - Friday 18th September
Key Highlights for 2015
- For the first time, we will be offering a fully participatory Global Webcast event as part of the Conference proceedings. The aim of this event is to deepen the connections within the worldwide Transition Movement, strengthening our understanding of, and participation in the way Transition is being applied - and how it needs to apply - globally!
- 50 representatives from 25 National Hubs will be meeting for their annual gathering prior to, during and after the Conference, bringing a broad range of voices from across the world of Transition
- Friday 18th is dedicated to day-length workshops covering a range of Transition skills and topics, from Housing to Personal Resilience. Full details of the programme can be found here: https://www.transitionnetwork.org/conference-2015-friday-programme
- 1 Year in Transition are intending to host their first Pan-European Youth Gathering as part of the wider Conference programme. Find out more about how to make this happen by clicking HERE.
- There will, for the first time, be a full childrens programme provided for those wishing to bring and involve their kids
- We are embracing the Gift Economy as a crucial tenet of our commitment to affordability, accessibility and inclusion. We are offering low-cost Bursaries and invite anybody who feels they cannot afford to come but would really like to to get in touch and discuss how, and if, we can make this possible. We encourage everybody to ask how they can help others be part of this Conference. You can find a section on how you can be involved in the Gift aspects of this event on the Venue & Conference Information Page.
