TransitionPGH is proud to announce that we have been selected to host a Training for Transition (T4T)! Two trainers from our national organization will visit for a two-day intensive training. Training for Transition is the popular, in-depth experiential workshop brought to the U.S. by the international Transition Network. The course describes how to set up, run, and maintain a successful Transition Initiative. It is packed with imaginative and inspiring ways to engage your community, and delves into both the theory and practice of Transition that has worked so well in hundreds of communities in the U.K. and around the world. It meets the training requirement for local initiating groups to become an internationally-recognized Transition Town.
TransitionPGH is a volunteer network of support for low-energy living in the Pittsburgh Bioregion. TransitionPGH is the hub from which neighborhood-sized transition initiatives can launch. The goal of each initiative is to establish a collective 20-year vision, determine the steps, and then execute what's called the Energy Descent Action Plan (EDAP) to accomplish each vision for each neighborhood in Pittsburgh. To get a better handle on TransitionPGH, you can read this press release and attend the meetup and film screening on March 9th.
The training runs 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. both days at Kingsley House, 6435 Frankstown Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15206. Lunch is pot luck, and snacks are provided. Cost is $200 for 2 days with 2 trainers from TransitionUS. Some scholarships will be given if there is a legitimate need or trade agreement.
