If you're interested in joining the Transition Challenge but need some ideas for a stellar project, are wondering how to get others involved, or just seeking inspiration, you're in the right place. In "Tools and Tips for the Transition Challenge," we'll be hearing from Trathen Heckman, founder of Daily Acts. Trathen helped launch the original 350 Challenge (the inspiration for the Transition Challenge) in 2010 in Sonoma County, CA, and he and his team have successfully grown the challenge from 628 actions in its first year to a goal of 3,500 actions this year (and we're hoping to add another 1,500 actions from Transitioners across the country!). Trathen will provide an overview of the history, framework, and goals of the challenge; highlight best practices and past successes; help brainstorm projects, partnerships, and potential resources, and more. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the teleseminar with your questions for Trathen and suggestions for topics you'd like to see covered.
