Transition-inspired local neighborhood groups will be initiated and enabled throughout Winnipeg.
To this end, we will put on a 1-day Unleashing Event at the University of Winnipeg on Sat Apr 28. This event will achieve the following:
- Introduce Transition Winnipeg to the community. Attendees will
- learn that Transition Winnipeg exists and why it exists (the peak oil +climate change + financial volatility story)
- be exposed to some inspiring examples of what is already being done
- Invite community members into a process which sparks the formation of more transition groups undertaking concrete projects in local neighborhoods.
The Unleashing event will include the following:
- Open Space elements to encourage those attending to generate these activity ideas themselves
- Having Transition Winnipeg members there to facilitate and encourage the general Transition “spirit” without trying to direct the affinity groups that emerge from the Open Space process in any particular direction
- 1-page background information handout provided for all attendees
- Display opportunities provided for groups engaged in supporting activities (e.g. Permaculture, local food)
