Event Details

INTRO

Bringing together people from communities across the world, who are working in very different ways to create or protect sustainable, local and fair ways of living.

With workshops to touch your hands, heart and head and a two day process that will move through connecting to our personal and cultural resources, facing up to challenges we're up against, finding out about an amazing range of ways that people in the UK and beyond are taking action and identifying the next steps on the journey. All this plus delicious food, children's workshops, fun and collaborative entertainment, and most of all a great bunch of fellow travellers in the beautiful setting of the John McIntyre Centre with view of Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh.

This event is hosted by Transition Scotland with the support of the Transition Network & The University of Edinburgh. For a fuller description of the aims of the conference, please click here. We hope that your weekend with us will be inspiring, energising and enjoyable.  

We have been lucky enough to attract funding from the Scottish Climate Change Fund to help with putting on this conference which has allowed us to keep prices for tickets, food and accommodation lower than they would otherwise have been, while providing what we hope you agree will be an exciting and diverse programme.

If you're coming to Edinburgh for the first time, you're in for a treat!  Edinburgh is one of the greenest and architecturally most beautiful cities in Northern Europe. We have five Transition groups active in Edinburgh, an emerging local food network and lots of other local projects working on Transition issues in a range of ways.

For more information about Edinburgh see: www.edinburgh.org or http://www.geo.ed.ac.uk/home/tour/edintour.html.

VENUE AND CONFERENCE INFORMATION

Accessibility

The venue is fully accessible. There are some accessible bedrooms and the breakfast room is fully accessible. 

Children and young people

We have some places for children (0-16 year olds) who are attending with a parent or guardian. Please make sure that you book places for your children.

There will be separate children’s [5-11] and young people’s [12-16] activities during the weekend, so please let us know ages when booking, and whether your children want to join in with these scheduled activities. View the children’s & young people’s programmes.

If your child is attending with you and is either younger than 5 or doesn't wish to join in the activities, please be aware that you still need to book. Sadly we cannot afford to provide creche facilities, so you will need to keep your child with you at all times and be responsible for their welfare.

Note:  If you think your 5-16 year old child would be happier in the older or younger group even if they don't fall in that age bracket, please let us know in the booking form.

Lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday, and dinner will be provided on Saturday. If you have booked the onsite accommodation this includes breakfast. Please let us know of dietary restrictions when booking.
