Your Input Wanted for Transition Thrive Online Training!

Thrive Circle

Transition US is currently developing the first online version of Transition Thrive Training and we would like your input!

Thrive can be thought of as the sequel to Transition Launch Training (formerly, "Training for Transition"). While Launch focuses on the first few steps of the Transition process - understanding the context for Transition, forming an initiating group, raising awareness, and establishing partnerships with other like-minded groups - Thrive builds on this foundation to provide some answers for how to sustain, broaden, deepen, and scale-up the impacts of community resilience-building initiatives over time.

Please submit your responses to the following questions no later than February 14, 2019 (Valentine's Day). We expect that our first offering of Transition Thrive Online Training will be available through Transition US this fall.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts!
