Transition Conference 2011

Less than two weeks to go until the Transition Conference 2011, and the organisers are at the last stages of planning and preparing.

This year’s conference will run from 7pm on Friday July 8th until 1pm Monday July 11th.

It’s looking like another great conference. The list of workshops is fantastic, there are discussion groups on all sorts of topics, visits to local projects, talks, networking, a big group process, and all manner of goodness.

Below you can find an update on the conference itself, an encouragement to buy tickets, a request for you to fill in the movement-wide project support survey, and some links to some relevant blogs including the conference2011 blog.

Tickets

Naturally we’re super keen that you come along. There are a variety of tickets to choose from on the tickets page. There are full tickets for the whole event. We’ve also got day tickets, enabling those closer to Liverpool to come for just a day at a lower cost, and we welcome applications for our reduced price concession tickets for those who will appreciate them. Don’t be shy! And if you know someone who wants to come but isn’t flush with cash, send this on to them.

Project Support Survey

We need your input to help us prioritise and shape our work to support Transition Initiatives.This support survey is the most detailed and potentially far-reaching feedback request we’ve undertaken. It will guide us to providing the most suitable support to you. We will provide the early results of this survey to those attending the UK Conference in Liverpool in July 2011, and will also publish the results on the Transition Network website.

Please complete the Transition Project Support Survey

And if you really can’t come, we will be capturing as much of the essence of the conference as possible on the Conference 2011 blog and all the usual social media channels. But our main focus will be onsite, so our first recommendation is you come along…

Conference highlights from our very own Rob

As the Transition movement grows, deepens and spreads, it is developing strongly around themes such as localisation and social enterprise, the practicalities of making projects happen on the ground, and the critical importance of building good strong groups to underpin the whole process (to name but a few).

The conference offers the opportunity to reconnect with what’s emerging, what people are doing, as well as to hear new ideas from a range of other areas/organisations.  You will meet people doing Transition in cities, towns, villages and universities up and down the country, as well as some from further afield.

Every Transition conference has had its own distinct identity, from the first one at Ruskin Mill to last year’s event at Seale Hayne.  This year will be another unique experience, drawing on the passion and experience of Liverpool’s Transition groups and also a variety of other local food/community development groups in the city.

It promises to be a rich, exhilarating and energising weekend.  You will also get a very real taste of what the soon-to-be-published ‘Transition Companion’ will look like and how it presents Transition in a very different way to the ‘Transition Handbook’.  Soul food forTransition.   See you there.
