“In the leaking ship that we’ve made of our planet, the Transition movement is like a flotilla of life rafts. And they’ve come not to pull us off the earth, but to help us patch it and make it right. There’s no one on earth who’s just done more stuff–and inspired more doing – than Rob Hopkins. This book shows how you can Do Stuff Too!”

Training for Transition is the popular, in-depth experiential workshop created by the global Transition Network.

Dreaming, organizing, and awareness raising are all important parts of the work we do, but there is something to be said for bringing people together, getting your hands dirty, and creating something beautiful. As we heard in last month's teleseminar with Rob Hopkins, practical projects are one of the most fun and effective ways to energize and strengthen your existing Transition groups and reach out to inspire and engage your community.

Transition Town Missoula officially dropped the question mark from its name last Friday—nearly one year to the day since the group's first introductory meeting at the University Congregational Church. In other words, the mulling over whether Missoula should join a global movement toward more resilient and self-sustaining communities is over. Now comes the doing.
