She has set up a Training Support Circle with several Hubsters, and together they will recruit and support the new Training Coordinator. The format of the evening is a Q&A style. Come and ask about how the global Transition Network operates and the projects it facilitates. Ask about the U.K. "pop-up tomorrow" project and Rob's new book!

Deborah would like to hear about what Transitioners are doing in the Twin Cities, about our projects, dreams, and challenges.
