Bi-Weekly Look-Ahead – 2017.07.25

Hi all,

We’re aiming to experiment with a new post format – twice a month, we’ll do an update with all the events coming up in the next month.  So, without further ado…

Share and Inspire: Transition Towns Convergence

An opportunity for Transition Town people (so, anyone involved with any Transition groups, including us) to reconnect and share stories, news, ideas and plans. Ideal for people wanting to start a Transtion group or find new ways to build a resilience, localised and sustainable community.
The day’s program will include sessions on:
– sharing our celebrations and challenges – including posters and short presentations
– discussing issues of interest or concern
– Briefing on Transition Hub Australia and the 2017 Transition Communities National Summit.

Saturday 29 July 2017 9.30am-4.30pm at  
The Hub @ Docklands, 80 Harbour Esplanade, Docklands 3008

Please RSVP by 26 July here.
