Attendees at the 2009 Transition Network conference in Battersea
The 2010 Transition Network conference is fast upon us (June 12-14th, Seale Hayne Agricultural College, Devon), and I can now announce the mouthwatering array of delights that will be on offer for those attending. See below for the outline of the event, and then click here to see details of the workshops that will be on offer. Every aspect of Transition will be explored in depth, the list of workshops is so dazzling that you will want to be able to clone yourself in order to attend them all. This really is going to be an utterly unmissable, life-changing, hugely re-energising, inspirational couple of days. You can book here, and the workshop list will no doubt still be tweaked as the conference approaches.
