In attending the 2-day conference, I discovered what I already knew about the Transition Town movement and what I haven’t learned yet. For me the conference was big encouragement for a deeper dive. I feel a renewed sense of resolve to creatively assist my community to ride the wave of transitions from various sources in the future.

Many of the brilliant presenters who spoke at our first National Gathering have generously offered to share their presentations with you. As a result, you'll find 16 different presentations below - on topics ranging from "The Psychology of Sustainable Behavior" to "Building a Transition Town" to "The Rise of Sharing Cities" - which you can either view directly on this page or download for free as a PDF. They are organized alphabetically, by the presenter's first name. Read on and enjoy!
