The Great Transition Splash will be 9-15 September 2019

The idea is to have as many voices as possible simultaneously talking about transitioning to a life affirming culture, so that people hear the idea ‘everywhere’

… and follow through with conversations, webinars and workshops to support people in thinking through what is involved in transitioning to a life affirming culture.

Ways to participate in the Splash

Three primary ways are:

Additional ways include:

  • Talks and panel discussions
  • Conducting Kitchen Table Conversations training
  • Guerrilla marketing
  • Publishing articles about transitioning to a life affirming culture

Spreading the meme and mass-producing conversations

Our intention is to mass-produce the conversations and thinking that will inspire mainstream commitment to actually pulling out of our ecological nosedive by changing all the drivers that make things worse. Huge – but this is what is needed in our time.

Our model is to engage as many of the members of the millions of groups that care about environmental and social well-being as possible ascitizen-educators.

We describe this model in the article Applying Design Thinking to Large-Scale Social Change.

We provide a robust set of communication tools. They include sample emails, guerrilla marketing tactics, and Kitchen Table Conversations, a special tool for one-to-one conversations. Kitchen Table Conversations use physical markers to help people keep track of conversations about systemic change; the idea came from a former stage magician.

Not a ripple, but a tidal wave of communcation
