Establishing and Growing a Transition Town Group with Auckland Council

April 16th, 2013

Would you like to set up a Transition Town in your area or are you in a group that wants to meet and discuss next steps with other Transition Town groups?

Please come along to our Workshop on Sunday May 12th 10 – 1.00

This workshop is the second of two Transition Towns events being supported by Auckland Council in conjunction with Mt Eden, Grey 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 Transition community.

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.
