If you find yourself in London in May


I was sent this about the Transition conference in London. It sounds amazing.  Who knows, somebody might be in London and could go and then report back to Grey Lynn 2030.

The 2009 Transition Network conference is at the Battersea Arts Centre in London, 22 to 24-May, 2009.

We’re finalising a programme that includes:

  • a wide range of workshops including “how can Britain feed itself?”, constellations, Transition business, the financial crash, engaging with your local authority and much more
  • training courses in the days before and after the conference, including Transition Training and Permaculture design
  • an Energy Descent Action Plan in two hours
  • lots of open space sessions
  • Transition movie premiere
  • exciting range of speakers for Saturday evening’s public meeting
  • an open mike party

We’ve set the price at £85, covering just about everything except breakfast and evening meals – even an early morning guided cycle trip on Saturday if you’re crazy enough.

If you’re planning to attend, then you’ll need to complete the following invitation. Make it quick though – we’re already getting bombarded with requests. conference@transitionnetwork.org

You can come back to your invitation response anytime up until 10-May to amend your details by clicking on the link in this email, so if you can only partially complete it right now, that’s ok.

Regarding accommodation, we’ve assembled some very useful information and a couch-surfing forum here to help you with your arrangements.

We’ve designed this conference to help you:

  • connect with other transitioners and share experiences
  • learn more about the head, heart and hands of transition across a very broad spectrum of community activity
  • find ways to deepen, broaden and accelerate the initiative in your community
  • help shape the Transition Network as we embark on another year of transition ideas spreading far and wide

If you can’t make it to the conference, we’ll be making the output available both in written form and also live audio streaming, so keep an eye on our website. Maybe see you in 2010?

For the rest of you that can attend, once we receive the agreed amount by cheque or online transfer, we’ll confirm your place.

Thanks very much for all your wonderful work and we’re looking forward to seeing you in London in May.

The Transition Network team, London


  1. This looks amazing! Wouldn’t it be great to organise some funding and send someone next time? However the live streaming may be just as good… and definitely more eco-friendly.
