Seeking Venue for 2017 Transition National Gathering

Greetings Transitioners!

As we celebrate 10 years of Transition US in 2017, it’s time for a Transition national gathering! We’re considering hosting our first national gathering during the summer or fall of 2017 and are looking for a venue that meets the following criteria – please contact us if you know of such a place:

·         Centrally located within continental US (Midwest/Central US)

·         Accessible by public transit (within 1 hour of a city/transportation hub)

·         Can host 100-300 people

·         Camping on-site or nearby

·         Proximity to hotels/homestays/other lodging

·         Indoor & outdoor workshop spaces, plenty of shade

·         Reasonably priced

·         Aligned with Transition values

Our ideal location is a permaculture farm, college campus, or camp with potential for on-site camping/housing, close to a major city (Milwaukee, Chicago, Detroit, etc.), but we are open to other settings. Even better if there is a local Transition Initiative nearby that would be excited to support this gathering.

Please send your suggestions, along with website & contact info for the venue, to by October 30th, 2016.

Many thanks!

ALSO – we are forming a National Working Group to organize this event. Please contact if you are interested in being part of the core organizing team
