A wide range of skills that were commonplace in the past have not been passed on, meaning that many people lack basic practical skills like gardening or food preservation. In industrial societies these skills have not been necessary, but it means that communities are more vulnerable to external shocks. Transition groups aim to address this loss of practical skills and offer reskilling opportunities, such as workshops in growing food, making cheese, baking or maintaining bicycles.
Skillshare is a Transition initiative encouraging the community to share simple skills. Community is at the heart of Transition, with the belief that creating happier, fairer and stronger communities will in turn support us to begin to build a more sustainable society. Please join our online community to receive regular updates on when the next skillshare event will take place.
