Transformative Community Development: how you can engage in the vitalization and transition in municipalities

David Steinwender (Transition Austria)

In this workshop the participants will get some insights in approaches to citizen-led bottom-up community development to engage in and foster sustainable transitions at municipal level. After some input the workshop focuses on the interests of the participants. Thereby we look at what they wanna do and what they can do in order to transform their communities context. This will be done by using the permaculture inspired model of Transition Towns, Vital Communities and Art of Hosting and Harvesting. Further models and concepts might also be dealt with. In order to make this workshop pro-active the participants are asked to prepare some information about their context of activism/work so we can start quickly to work on next steps related to these contextes. Each participant will be an expert in this workshop.
