How DO we engage a whole city in building a new, low carbon economy? An experiment that began in Totnes UK in 2004, is now a network of over 500 Transition Towns around the world including our own Transition Alberni Valley, Comox, Cowichan, Denman, Golden Ears, Quadra, Saltspring, Sooke, Village Vancouver and Victoria. This session will introduce Transition Towns and focus on three key ingredients of the model: Communicating our Context for a new economy, Engaging Citizens and Multi-Sector Leadership. There will be presentations, discussions and small group activities in this workshop and participants are encouraged to come with a group or project of their own in mind (but this is also not essential to taking away new skills and ideas).
