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 8 regional workshops across England to explore the benefits of setting up regional networks to share the possibilities and challenges of working "In Transition".


We are running a free workshop (full details below) in Exeter on 23rd September for groups in the South West to get together and investigate the idea of a regional hub/s in this area. We understand that this is quite a large geographical area and as a result there is a possibility for several hubs to emerge.


This Workshop is a great opportunity to:


  • Connect with other groups

  • Design a regional network

  • Grow transition together


We are also organising workshop in Cornwall on the 24th September if you would rather attend that then let me know.


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


Important this workshop is for people already in Transition Groups.


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. London now has a really thriving network that meets regularly, shares information and has arranged events together. We want to help other networks to develop based on the great stuff that has happened there to create thriving networks throughout England.


  • You design your network


Workshop facilitators Mike Thomas (Transition Network) and Richard Couldrey (Transition Town Tooting) have both been involved in the development of the London and SE hub. 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 whether there is energy for a regional network, what it function should be and how to develop it.


  • 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.
