What Next Summit

Wow – thank you to all of you who joined us and participated to make the What Next? Summit such a wonderful event. 2,000 community activists came together across 3 weeks, to listen to over 70 speakers and take part in a mesmerising multiplicity of conversations about positive changes in our communities. Thank you.

If you missed the Summit, don’t worry, Rob Hopkins has written a round up of the key moments and reflections here. We also recorded most of the sessions, so that you can watch them again, or enjoy them for the first time. Watch the What Next? Summit sessions on our YouTube playlist here.

We were also lucky enough to have Fanny Didou, aka. Sketching the Move creating visual illustrations of some of the keynote sessions across our 3 week journey.  You can find these in the Resource Library on the Losing Control platform, and also on our Twitter feed here.

Created by Transition Network and CTRLShift the What Next? Summit helped build community power across the UK by bringing together hundreds of community activists already making change happen, so together we can have a bigger impact.

The summit was hosted on a new and exciting online space by the Losing Control Network. If you would like to connect with other people and organisations within and outside the Transition Network, all committed to building community power in the UK  you can sign up to the Losing Control Platform here.

Can't wait to 'relocate environmentalism' along with councillors who say they are working for social justice and more. Looking forward to at least having a discussion with a possiblility of being heard and therefore seeing Real Change - very soon. Why aren't we working together yet?

Food, glorious food! Absolutely! There is so much celebration, conversation and literal nourishment (!) in food. Thanks for posting your comment. Can't see the link in the comment, so I'll dig it out and share on socials. Richard (TBF Team)

This is fantastic and I could not agree more. Just to add, food is a fantastic material through which much of this can happen. For more please see the food ladders framework available in the link below. There are so many people doing this to add strength to their communities this way and we need to make them visible.
