19-21st March 2010
A weekend of Training for Transition Tales aimed at educators of all description; in fact anyone wanting to work with school and/or community groups of all ages to engage them in the process of visioning and develop Transition Tales in their area.
Transition Tales are visions of a positive future. They help us to collectively envision a world in which we are meeting present day challenges, they can entice us to take the next step and affirm that, however small that step might feel, it’s part of the interweaving of a larger whole. They are also an especially effective way of engaging the creativity and imagination of young people.
It all started in 2006 when Rob Hopkins (Transition Town Totnes (TTT), & co founder of the Transition Network) and other TTT-ers saw the need to involve young people in the process of visioning the future we would all like to see. Since then Transition Tales has been working in 4 local schools, and has presented at 3 South West conferences aimed at school children and educators, several Transition events in Totnes and London, a Summer Family Camp, as well as at the National Transition Conference in Battersea in May 2009, and the National Transition Scotland Gathering in December 2009.
The weekend will be facilitated by Steph Bradley and Inez Aponte, two experienced trainers whose approach is fun, inspiring and inclusive. We will take the story within each of us as a starting point to envision and create the possible collective stories of a positive future. We will also be sharing one of the key tools so far developed by the group – an interactive community game called “The Quest” – as well as a host of other innovative techniques for unleashing the storyteller in all of us.
Who is it for?
The course is aimed at educators of all description; in fact anyone wanting to work with school and/or community groups of all ages to engage them in the process of visioning and develop Transition Tales in their area.
