Will you help with re-writing the Transition Handbook?

Over the coming few months I will be sharing with you the ongoing work in developing the patterns-based model of Transition that will form the centrepiece of the second version of the Transition Handbook, starting on Monday. I have explained how that approach will work before, and it was also set out in the booklet produced for the 2010 Transition Network conference. To do this, we are trying out a different approach, not a wiki, but a rather exciting way of gathering your input. These patterns need to be alive and rich with your hard-won experience, your failures as well as your successes. Here’s how it will work:

Most days, I will post a draft version of a pattern I have been working on. They won’t necessarily be in a chronological order, but randomly chosen from thoughout the patterns. Please have a read, and then post as comments (not here but at the link provided) suggestions for alternative photos, anecdotes, case studies, projects, stories, images, links, whatever you can offer from the experience of your involvement with Transition, anything you feel should be reflected in that pattern. It is these that will bring the book to life. To enable this, we have set up, on the Transition Network website, a directory of patterns, which will evolve and grow as new patterns are added, edited and refined. It will be from this directory that the final version of the book will be drawn. My thanks to Ed, Jim and Helen for all their hard work on creating this. I hope this will prove to be a very exciting and productive collaborative process…. see you on Monday (can’t wait!)…
