Sustainable NE Seattle has developed a six-week discussion course based on The Transition Handbook, and is now making the course available to other Transition Initiatives who want to offer it to their own members. "We're excited to let you know about a Discussion Course that we have created in our Transition Initiative (Sustainable NE Seattle). It's based on the Transition Handbook, and it's proving to be a great way to introduce and engage new people in the Transition model," said Leo Brodie.
"We have offered the course once locally, made improvements based on the feedback, then asked Naresh Giangrande in Totnes for input. He made several good suggestions which we have also incorporated. (Naresh had very kind words to say about the program - both the idea of doing it and the execution.)"
Structured as six sessions of two hours each, the course is a great way to introduce your members to the concepts of Transition.
On January 11th, 2010 Sustainable NE Seattle held their first orientation meeting with twenty-six people registered, and split into two groups. "This photo shows the two groups after they divided up by geographic proximity. Together we pretty much took over the coffee shop. (We had permission ahead of time)," wrote Leo Brodie.
Thanks to Sustainable NE Seattle for sharing!
