Streetwise is a one day training course that provides the basis for running a Transition Streets (TS) project, whereby street by street behaviour change is introduced which will benefit the people involved and the environment. The course will be led by two Transition Totnes approved trainers and is designed for those wishing to co-ordinate and lead Streetwise courses in their area. It follows a successful trail with 8 households in the village of Cransford, part of GreenerFram.
Transitions Streets originated in Totnes under the name of Transition Together. Based on 468 households from 56 groups the average saving per household is around £570 per year and 1.3 tonnes of CO2 per year’. ‘The greatest benefit of participating was the new social connections and the strengthening of local community.’
Spaces are limited to 25 (with two people coming from any one ‘community’)
Local vegetarian food will be provided. There will be an optional donation of £5 to go towards printing more localised Transition Streets workbooks.
