This training will follow the Transition model in paying attention to both the outer work and the inner work necessary for a successful transition process. The course is participatory, action-learning-based and fun, with participants invited to share their own experience and learn from the many different transition projects represented in the group.
The first Training for Transition was held in October 2007 in Totnes, and there have now been hundreds of further trainings over 20 countries. There are now Transition Trainers in Canada, the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Holland, Italy, Sweden, Belgium, Norway, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Ireland, China, and Japan who are now offering Training for Transition in those countries. In addition we have run trainings in Hungary, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, and Colombia.
Between $150 - $225 per person. Scholarships are sometimes available. Contact the organizers for more details.
The US Transition Trainers are all trained by Naresh Giangrande and Sophy Banks, both long-term contributors to Transition Town Totnes and founders of Transition Training. Biographies of the US Transition Trainers can be found here
