Creating a more sustainable future for Marbella

The In Transition 2012 conference is coming to Marbella on the 27th of October. The conference will take place at the Palacio de Congresos from 11.00-22.00, featuring talks about the Transition Town concept from many high profile speakers. This non-profit event costs 10€ to attend. There will also be a free market featuring products from local transition projects.

The Transition Town movement is a campaign to create more sustainable communities which reduce their carbon footprint, are less reliant on fossil fuels and equip people with the skills to respond to the changing circumstances which diminishing fossil fuels will cause.

In Transition 2012 is a non profit event organised by Marbella Town Hall and Arboretum Marbella and aims to inspire local politicians and residents alike to create more sustainable communities. It will bring together experts from Transition projects locally, nationally and internationally to share their successes and difficulties, offering practical solutions to creating more sustainable communities.

The event will feature talks from a number of speakers from Transition communities around the world, including Rob Hopkins, co founder of the Transition Network and author of The Transition Handbook. There will also be group sessions, encouraging discussion on dealing with the economic crisis through the Transition model. Rob Hopkins will deliver his speech in English but the rest of the speeches will be given in Spanish, so delegates require a good understanding of Spanish.

Tickets are now on sale at FNAC La Cañada, Marbella.
