An Evolving Exploration into the Head, Heart and Hands of Energy Descent

Transition Culture has moved

I no longer blog on this site. You can now find me, my general blogs, and the work I am doing researching my forthcoming book on imagination, on my new blog.

My Conference – Miranda from Ecomotion is back again. . .

Miranda Vaughan Jones

Day one kicks off with all of the unusual formalities we have come to expect from T.T. – an exercise involving asking strangers how old they are, Ed Miliband being introduced as a keynote listener, and Sophy setting the scene with her seductive sibilance reminiscent of the woman from the M&S adverts.  This is not just a conference…this is a Transition Network conference.

So out come the scissors, pipe cleaners and sticky-back plastic to illustrate (and sculpt, and collage) the achievements of various T.T initiatives from all corners of everywhere.  Following on the Blue Peter theme, homemade cakes brought in by transitioners are consumed with tea in true community cake sale style (without the sale, of course) which sustained the group through the plethora of open space sessions and, hopefully, long into the night.

Comments are now closed on this site, please visit Rob Hopkins' blog at Transition Network to read new posts and take part in discussions.
