TRANSITION TRAINING for Carbon Neutral Scotland 10am-5pm Sun 3Mar Edinburgh

  • pin St Leonard's Land 3.24 Moray House School of Education Holyrood Road, EH8 8AQ Edinburgh (map)

"Climate Emergency" / IPCC SR1.5 degrees "12 years" etc - all means we have to use our local creativity for a fairer, greener Carbon Neutral Scotland!
Transition Scotland hub invite you to a join Tina Clarke in a journey through the community-led tools and techniques used by initiatives in the global Transition Network.

A participatory workshop for those newly determined to "do something" and older hands seeking new ways to create the world we all long for. Tina will take us through eight keys to successful local Climate Actions:
1. Positive Visioning: Our primary focus is not campaigning against things, but rather on positive, empowering possibilities and opportunities
2. Help People Access Good Information and Trust Them to Make Good Decisions: Transition Initiatives … present information in ways which ... enable people to feel enthused and empowered rather than powerless
3. Inclusion and Openness: Decision making processes and working groups embody principles of openness and inclusion … no room for ‘them and us’ thinking
4. Enable Sharing and Networking: Instead of telling people what to do, seeing what emerges from friendly connections with people living nearby
5. Build Resilience: across many topics - food, economics, energy etc - this is a broad goal that includes many kinds of projects and activities within it
6. Inner and Outer Transition: Enabling and supporting people to do what they're passionate about and feel called to do
7. Transition makes sense – the solution is the same size as the problem: People feel overwhelmed by the challenge - so work on the problem in small, friendly, task-oriented groups
8. Subsidiarity: self-organisation and decision making at the appropriate level: The Transition model is not to centralise or control decision making, but to work with everyone ... at the most empowering level
This session follows the SCCAN Gathering on Saturday with extensive opportunities for local SkillSharing.
