Engage with your local community, businesses and other organisations

For many Transition Initiatives and REconomy Groups organising an event is one of the first key activities to engage with your local community, businesses and other organisations. Coming together at a local or regional event can give the space and time to work together to decide how you want your local economy to be shaped and what you might do.

Running an event
