Lessons From Sandpoint (Part 1) - Initiating Groups, Building Partnerships, Raising Awareness

Online (Free)
Tuesday, January 12, 2010 - 4:00pm


Whether you're already engaged in a Transition Initiative in your community or are considering launching one, this interactive webinar is designed to give you some practical guidance and inspiration, drawn from the experience of local initiatives across the country (and beyond). Here's where you can get your questions answered and share your concerns, and get feedback from other leaders in the Transition movement.

This is not a presentation per se, but will be created "on the fly" with your participation. Some of the issues that may come up: 

  • What are the most common mistakes made by Transition Initiatives?
  • What are the most common challenges and stumbling blocks that Transition Initiatives face?
  • What are some of the "best practices" and most successful approaches that TIs can adopt?
  • What are the best ways to get started in your community?
  • What's working? What's not?
  • Who's ready? Who's not?
  • Why take the Training for Transition?
  • What about fundraising?
  • Should you become a non-profit organization?
  • What's your relationship with Transition U.S.?
  • Why should you apply for "official" status?
  • How do we make our Transition movement more diverse?

Who Should Attend?
Anyone considering starting a Transition Initiative (aka Mullers) and those already working within an Initiative who is looking for tips on taking the effort to the next level.
