How do you engage people with different perspectives in projects and action? How do you talk with people who disagree with you? Learn how to connect with a wide range of personalities in your community, and even find ways to work together. Transition is a terrific format for helping move a community from alienation and polarization to collaboration. Discover and share how to help neighbors go beyond their comfort zones to communicate ideas and inspiration, facilitate dialogue, and organize successful cross-sector projects. We'll share experiences and models, help each other build skills, and tailor Transition to our unique communities.
