We are planning a "European Transition Town Conference"
as a camp for next year. It will happen from wednesday, may 19 to monday, may 24 2010
. We invite people from Transition Town Initatives and those interested in the Transition Town Movement from all over Europe to gather in spring 2010. The camp will be held in the ecovillage of Sieben Linden in northern Germany - an impressive example for a newly built resilient village. (www.siebenlinden.de
About 150 activists from Transition Town Initiatives from all over Europe will come to share their experiences, learn new methods and get to know each other.
For more detailled information about the conference, please look: http://www.siebenlinden.de/content.php?p=9965
It is possible to ask the EU for a Grundtvig-grant for the conference - that grant includes the course fee, a lump sum for food and lodging and
the travel expenses. But you have to apply soon! (In Germany, the deadline is january 15th, but it can differ from country to country. For more detailled information about the funding, please check: http://www.siebenlinden.de/content.php?p=9971
That's why we ask you to spread this news in your networks as soon as possible and to ask the people that might be interested to preregister
and to apply for the funding. It is a unique possibility to participate in an interesting conference about the transition movement, to get to
know the ecovillage of Sieben Linden and to share your experiences with other initiatives from all over Europe! And all that - if you get the
funding - without any costs!
We are looking forward to meeting you all in Sieben Linden next year!
