July 27-31, 2017
Transition members and community resilience builders from across the country are invited to gather in St. Paul, Minnesota, this July to make connections, share knowledge, and generate strategies to bring the Transition vision of resilient, local, connected and fossil-fuel-free communities to life across this nation.
With a team of Transition organizers from across the country, and 75 knowledgeable, dynamic and diverse presenters, this event promises to be inspiring, informative and fun!
The event kicks off on Thursday, July 27, with two days of intensive workshops digging deep into some of the critical areas of Transition: permaculture intensives, effectively launching new groups, the work of Inner Transition, and more.
On Thursday evening participants will join with community members to view the award-winning French film Demain (Tomorrow).
The main gathering begins Friday evening, July 28, with keynote speaker and Post Carbon Institute Senior Fellow, Richard Heinberg. A journalist and educator who has written extensively on energy, economics, and ecological issues, Heinberg has played a key role in communicating the need for transitioning to a new way of living and doing business.
Saturday and Sunday feature a powerful line-up of more than 40 concurrent workshops, with ample networking opportunities designed to broaden, deepen, and scale up our movement. Saturday evening features a keynote speaker and spoken word and music performance that will touch your heart and bring you to your feet.
