Event description

Description


Important this workshop is for people already in Transition Groups.


My name is Richard Couldrey from the Transition London and South East Hub and Transition Town Tooting I'm working with Mike Thomas of the Transition Network to facilitate 10 regional workshops across England to explore the benefits of setting up regional networks to share the possibilities and challenges of working "In Transition".

Cornwall already has a the Transition Cornwall Network, so this workshop will provide the opportunity to check-in, reflect on the value of connecting in a local network and plan next steps.

The free workshop (full details below) in Cornwall will be on 24th September. We understand that this is quite a large geographical area and so it will be interesting to see what emerges as a most useful network.

This Workshop is a great opportunity to:

  • Connect with other groups

  • Develop and refresh the regional network in Cornwall

  • Grow transition together

We are also organising workshop in Exeter on the 23rd September if you would rather attend that then book here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/transition-regional-networks-workshop-covering-south-west-of-england-tickets-35807882340

If you wish to come to the Cornwall event please sign up here on Eventbrite.

Many thanks to the University of Exeter and Alex Huke for supporting us with a venue and to Transition Cornwall and Paul Martin for helping co-ordinate.

Outline of workshop:

This day workshop has been developed out of work carried out in London and the South East where groups came together and co-designed a functioning regional network. This network developed through using a series of exercises to come up with ideas and plans and it is these exercises that form the basis of the workshop.

I'm working closely with Paul Martin to ensure that the workshop structure is relevant and useful for developing and sustaianing transition in Cornwall.

We've now run the workshop 8 times in the North West, London, Southampton, Lewes, Leicester, Berkhamstead, Bristol and Cambridge and have had strong feedback. Its also been great to see revitalised connections between groups.


  • Developing your network

Workshop facilitator Richard Couldrey (Transition Town Tooting) and Mike Thomas (Transition Network) have been involved in the development of the London and SE hub and facilitated all workshops so far. They believe that Transition groups in a region will know how best to define what their regional network does and how it functions. This workshop has been designed to facilitate this happening. At the end of this workshop, you and the other groups involved will have explored what the benefits of the Transiton Cornwall Netowkr areand how to develop connections locally.


  • We also want to learn from you and share your innovations

As part of this project, Richard is also carrying out research into scaling up grassroots social innovation to affect greater change. The workshop will also feedback into this process to seed the next steps of the project which includes strengthening and developing regional networks in preparation for a workshop about a National Hub later this year.
