Transition Town weekend a great success

The recent Transition Sunshine Coast training weekend set in the lush subtropics of the Sunshine Coast was a great success.

We had 23 people from around Australia take part and they were all very keen to dive in the deep end with us and explore Transition Towns and how they might be applied in their local communities.

Being a permaculture inspired event, the food was great too - and local and organic.

Group work is a big part of the weekend and people had the chance to put their own ideas on paper and talk to others about all things Transition.

We explored how climate change, peak oil and all the other pressures on the planet and society might lead to breakdowns or breakthroughs - an interesting exercise that got people thinking and more importantly sharing their thoughts with others, realising they're not alone.

Preparing their own toolkit of skills they need to balance the head, heart and hands of Transition work.

Hopes and dreams - setting the objectives for the weekend.

Our next training weekend is set for June this year, see above right for details.
