Establishing and Growing a Transition Town Group with Auckland Council

Trans Twn worskhop_1Would you like to set up a Transition Town in your area or are you already part of an existing Transition community and like to network and share learnings with other groups?

Transition Towns is a vibrant, international grassroots movement with a framework that communities can use to create positive solutions to the converging environmental, economic and social challenges that face us.

This workshop is the second of two Transition Towns events being supported by Auckland Council we are thrilled to be running in conjunction with Mt Eden Village PeopleGrey Lynn 2030 and Pt Chevalier Transition Towns groups.

This event is being held during the Grey Lynn Farmers Market – an example of an initiative led by the Grey Lynn 2030.

You may already be part of a grassroots sustainability action group or have attended the “Growing Sustainable Communities – Introduction to Transition Towns” presentation on 14th April and be wondering how to go about starting a Transition group in your local community.

This workshop is a networking opportunity for all Auckland Transition Town groups, whether they are well established, struggling to survive, or just starting out. Some active established groups will share their learnings and all involved will have an opportunity to explore solutions to common challenges and build closer ties with Auckland Council.

Free, lunch provided from Grey Lynn Farmers market

Registration essential for catering purposes. Please contact Debbie.Netley@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz or phone Debbie on 367 4342
