Transition Discussion Course

Sustainable NE Seattle, an “official” Transition Initiative in North America, has developed a six-week discussion course based on The Transition Handbook. They are now making the course available to other Transition Initiatives who want to offer it to their own members.

Structured as six sessions of two hours each, the course is a great way to introduce your members to the concepts of Transition. For each week, participants read the assigned chapters on their own, then meet to discuss the questions provided. The course has been designed to stimulate personal examination of our own cultural stories, and how we might collectively rewrite these stories to create a world that’s better than the one we have now.

It’s designed to be run by the participants themselves, so once you kick it off there’s no more work for you to do.

The course, developed by Joann Kerr, Susan Gregory, and Leo Brodie, received glowing reviews from its eleven participants when it was offered recently. Naresh Giangrande (co-founder of Transition Town Totnes and co-founder of Transition Training) has looked through the content and was highly impressed.
