Since last May, after 18 months of much buzz and excitement as a funded project, Transition Edinburgh University has been looking for a new direction. On the 9th of March, we talked about what role TEU could come to fulfil and whether it should become a University society or continue in another form.

Everyone who has previously attended Carbon Conversations is invited to the Carbon Conversations Networking Day on Saturday 10 March.
The day will be an opportunity to meet others who have taken part in, and facilitated Carbon Conversations courses. It will be an opportunity to exchange experiences and share ideas for future action. And also to enjoy a lovely vegetarian lunch!

Carbon Conversations has now had over 1000 participants across the UK, over 300 of those in Scotland, with average immediate savings of over 1 tonne per person. You will have some facilitation experience, be passionate about facilitating change in your community, and recognise the benefits of doing so through a values and emotions-based course.
This two-day training for facilitators is being held to support community groups across Scotland who wish to begin their own Carbon Conversations groups. Astrid Horward and Pam McLean are offering this course and are very experienced facilitators and environmentalists. They are Designated Trainers for facilitators of Carbon Conversations and have facilitated several Carbon Conversations groups between them.
