This is a course for those who are leaders or want to lead communities towards viable new ecologically sustainable urban and rural systems. The twin challenges of peak oil and global climate change require new skills and knowledge to build community resilience.  This course aims to do that, using selected inputs including film, current data, case studies and toolkits for action.  It is based on the Transition Town Model, which strives to empower people to deal with change in a positive way.  Participants are invited to use a self-directed learning approach and to strive towards using the skills learnt within their own communities and networks to deliver real outputs and results.
