British Council Latvia and Transition Network invite you to attend the 1st Transition Launch workshop in the Baltic States (Riga, 25th-26th January)
It is obvious that our society needs to change our lifestyles completely (in terms of energy use, resource consumption, waste management, food production, transportation etc.). It should be done where people are - in towns and cities (more than 70% of the Baltic State residents live in urban areas), and it should start now! In the same time, this process of transitioning to a more sustainable future can be very creative, refreshing and enjoyable, if we come together as a community and call us a transition initiative. In other words, it means practicing the principles of permaculture or building an ecovillage in the urban context...
The Transition Launch course aims to inspire the participants to try the concept of transitioning in their special environment with resources they already have. The course also gives a lot of practical examples of projects done by transition initiatives worldwide.
The course tutor Jan Forsmark is a representative of Transition Sweden, which contains more than 100 such initiatives today.
