Applications are now open for One Year in Transition 2013-14

19th March 2013

This is a new programme for people in their Twenties who want to lead their own practical projects for community wellbeing and find the right livelihood.

The course is offered by Transition Network, the organization that supports communities around the world that are committed to post-carbon living. Designed as a self-directed learning journey, you learn practical skills, community engagement and inner development. Spread over 11 months, it is as full or part time as you want it to be, is low cost and you can do it right where you are or move to a host community.

The Year includes:

Four meet-ups of around a week each (ending in July 2014). In September you learn about the workings of Transition in a special training programme, meet the team at the heart of Transition Network, practice the art of story-telling, get out into nature, and start your Action Enquiry. We will also design the rest of the year together.

Regular contact through Skype with your peers and tutors for mutual support and shared enquiry through questioning.

Help finding a skills master especially for you and a personal mentor who will support you through the challenges that the year will bring.

If you are interested in running this programme where you live please get in touch

Current participants are setting up the new network for youth in Transition, learning traditional rural skills, starting up a new Time Bank in Oxford and starting a new up-skilling programme for young people in Bristol.

“The course has given me permission to get wrapped up in nature and the metaphors of myth and has caused us, as a group of students to become close and to be truly honest and appreciative of one another” (Richard in South Brent).
“The first week's training was just phenomenal. I learnt so much from the Transition model, which is going to be so helpful in my own project. Especially the way people deal with the realisation that we are living in an unsustainable world, and how to support them and ourselves as we come to terms with the kind of appropriate actions we need to take” (Hannah in Oxford)
“As I stepped out of the door [at the end of the first week] I realised how incredibly grateful I am to be a part of 1YT and how healing it is to be carrying out this work” (Lisa in Bristol).

Essential information:

Start: This September 23 to 29 in Totnes, Devon
