Hi folks. Welcome to our new website on TRANSITION.SCOT
We've taken the decision to switch to a more modern and free web service while we get established as a new official hub. At the same time we hope to improve the content and to add extra features. Our Front page will be our Blog and will contain stories that are relevant to transition'ers in Scotland. We've opted to call groups 'trees' in our Transition woodland a bit like the model created by Transition Portugal. People connected to transition are our 'bees' buzzing around and helping with pollination of change.
In September I spent an intense 5-day period in Devon, southern England, attending the 2015 International Transition Conference. As part of the conference, the national Hubs, consisting of representatives of Transition in specific countries or regions, met to discuss what the Transition movement is, how we are doing, and where we should be heading. Strategic matters were discussed such as the role of the Transition Network, the Transition movement’s stance on COP21, and what support local initiatives may need from a national hub. There were more practical discussions, such as whether we can develop a Transition exchange platform similar to wwoofing, or how we could incorporate more Inner Transition into the organisation of our movement. But most of all, the meeting demonstrated the value of coming together and supporting each other as a group.
