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.

Time to Organise Those Transition Hustings!

lutonA while ago we published here a draft guide for Transition initiatives wanting to hold Transition hustings with their local election candidates, in particular to explore themes around resilience.  Thanks to everyone who sent in comments and changes, and I am delighted to announce that the final document is available now to download here.  It runs over 8 pages, so in theory it should be able to print out as a rather nice A5 booklet.  The first such husting to have reached our ears was held on 25th February by Transition Luton.  You can read a detailed report of the event here, including their reflections on how to do it better if they did it again and a rather ropey film that gives a flavour of the event.  Do let me know (rob (at) any stories of hustings you hold, and we’ll report them here.

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

I’m very interested in this concept, but the link to the document doesn’t seem to work for some reason?

[…] Although Transition initiatives generally prefer positive diy action over politics and campaigning, it remains important who represents our views in government on all levels. Rob Hopkins has an interesting post on his website on this subject: “Time to Organise Those Transition Hustings!“ […]

Great publication. One really minor recommendation that doesn’t detract from the wonderful presentation: Me thinks there are only nine transition BUT questions–not ten.

Great work. Busy “Yankeeizing” it for use with folks here in the upper midwest USA.

The first part is a rather wonderful short presentation when time is short and folks aren’t able (or willing) to stay for a long presentation.

You’re quite right, Erik. There are only nine buts. I’m sure there were ten once upon a time. We seem to have lost one along the way. Ah well – 9 buts, 9 lives of a cat!
