While the Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated the vulnerability and inequality experienced by many people in our communities, it has also demonstrated the potential for major and swift changes to reframe the purposes of our economy and our society.
In true Transition form our vision is not to ‘bounce back’ to how things were before. Transition groups have been crafting a vision of a better future for over a decade, that speaks to the needs for community resilience and a society with a focus on caring. So instead of bouncing back, we invite you to join with us to bounce forward.
From September to December 2020 Transition: Bounce Forward held 8 exciting webinars online to explore What Is? the situation and context we find ourselves in now and What If? how to use the power of imagination and collective visioning to unlock ideas and potential in ourselves and the wider community. We also gave out seed funding to 112 Transition Groups across England to enable them to bounce forward from Covid-19 and create an impact in their communities.
In March 2021 we will start exploring What Next? through our exciting What Next? Summit. This will take place from 3rd to 20th of March.
This online summit is not to be missed! It will build the power of community led action in the UK by bringing together hundreds of community activists who are already making change happen, so together we can have a bigger impact.
You can find all of our webinars online sessions here.
