OCTOBER 5th Portland, Maine

Fall 2013 New England Transition Gathering

Why have we all connected to do this work of Transition?

Why would others want to engage with us?

Why would we want to connect or align regionally?

What responsive structures could be put in place among us for transition?

Come to the Fall 2013 Transition Gathering in Portland Maine to find out!

At this event you will hear stories of best practices, lessons learned and responsive structures that build resilience. There will be multiple resource sharing opportunities throughout the day, copious opportunities to deepen our connection, collaborate, network, and enjoy delicious locavore food. Doors open at 9:30am.

Join us the night before to hear Rob Hopkins, co-founder of the Transition Network and John Rooks, founder of The SOAP Group speaking at Ludcke Auditorium at UNE, starting at 6pm.
