If you'd like to find out more about the Transition Town movement: what's happening, what's involved, who's involved and how you can be part of it - and you live near Cairns, Atherton or Innisfail, you're invited to one of the events (listed below) happening in the next couple of weeks.
The workshops will be run by Transition Sunshine Coast's experienced trainers. There will be lots of information, activities, networking, discussion and fun! - Guaranteed.
There are three public meetings so you can come along and hear first hand what's happening nationally and what could be happening locally and there is also a full two-day weekend workshop available that will give you the skills and confidence to start a Transition Initiative in your local area.
So, if you're interested in finding out what you can do about climate change and peak oil, how Transition Towns work on mitigation, adaption and preparedness, how communities are coming together to set up more resilient systems and to build community connections, then this is the week for you.
