Transition Training in Pittsburgh

From Bill Sharp, Transition Town State College Steering Committee:

Transition Training in Pittsburgh, April 9 and 10, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

This course is packed with imaginative and inspiring ways to catalyze, support and engage your community. Training4Transition delves into both the theory and practice of Transition that has worked so well in hundreds of communities in the U.K. and around the world.

  • Explore ways of increasing community resilience
  • Learn to describe the challenges of Peak Oil, climate change, and economic instability in ways that bring people together and inspire action
  • Receive tools for community outreach, education and creating shared vision
  • Learn ways to work with obstacles that have prevented our communities from responding to the challenges
  • Learn how to facilitate community collaboration — supporting existing activities and expanding the number and diversity of people involved
  • Meet others in your region who share your concerns and want to transition to greater stability and security
  • Become a part of a rapidly growing positive, inspirational, global movement!

Who should attend: People interested in learning ways to transition their community, people already creating a Transition Initiative, and communities wishing to become an internationally-recognized Transition Initiative.

Instructors: Tina Clarke, certified Transition Trainer will be making her fourth trip to Pittsburgh! She will be joined by Fred Brown, of the Kingsley Association in Pittsburgh and a certified TransitionUS trainer.

Cost: $160. Refreshments and study materials included. All food is Potluck! (Lodging not included.) If you can donate extra money for scholarships, your generosity will help those with low incomes to attend! A small amount of work-trade spots and scholarships are available.
