Atmos Totnes and the Power to Convene
One of the most ambitious examples of The Power to Convene to come through a Transition initiative is Atmos Totnes in Devon, England. It has brought together the site’s owner Dairy Crest, a mainstream developer and a community, to plan the future of the former manufacturing site. Its recent community consultation reached over 2,200 people, and the next stage of consultation starts again soon. The project is being driven forward by Totnes Community Development Society, formed by members of Transition Town Totnes, Totnes Community Development Society and others. Atmos Totnes have just put out this video, which tells the story so far, and offers a powerful taste of how The Power to Convene can feel when it goes well.
