An Update on All Things Transitioney and French
Transition-wise things seem to be moving along very swiftly in France, so here are a few of the more recent developments we want to share with you. The “In Transition 1.0” film is now available on Vimeo with embedded subtitles, thanks so much to Paul for helping us out with this. Also, more fantastic news is that Rob’s Transition Handbook has now been translated into French and published by Ecosocieté, so we hope this will inspire even more Transition initiatives to take off in France. Also, Kitty de Bruin and her web-guru Francis have built a wonderful new website for the French Network here. It seems there’s loads of Transition activity going on in France at the moment, but some of you are doing it rather quietly and secretively so we want you to tell us what you’re up to! Looking at the Initiatives Directory on the Transition Network website, there are three mulling initiatives in France: Salies de Béarn, Sucy-en-Brie, and Un système de partage global. We’ve also heard there’s been a Transition meeting in Lyon, so we wish you all the best with getting a Transition Initiative started up there. If there are any more groups in France, mulling or official, please do let us know by adding yourselves to the Directory of Transition Initiatives and add your projects to the Projects Directory. Also it seems likely a national co-ordinating body will soon emerge in France, so please make sure Ben at Transition Network is kept up to date with these developments….
