The work builds on the Kinsale Energy Descent Action Plan done in Ireland in 2005, which you can see <a href="http://transitionculture.org/essential-info/pdf-downloads/kinsale-energy-descent-action-plan-2005/" target="_blank">here</a>. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>This Pathways project is being designed as it is being rolled out, a process which is drawing out a great deal of imagination and creativity. We are finalising our plans and process development at the moment, and have run workshops with some of the TTT groups and projects.</p><p>The EDP project group has met several times, and the minutes of the meetings are available below. This project has been awarded £39,000 by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation for one and a half posts in order to drive this project forward, as well as £5,000 by APE for the costs of creating the plan. We appointed Jacqi Hodgson to coordinate this project in early June 08, along with the support of Rob Hopkins. The EDP project was officially launched on September 24th in Totnes.</p><p>If you would like to get involved, please contact us at <a href="mailto:edap.totnes@transitionnetwork.org">edap.totnes@transitionnetwork.org</a>. </p><p>Some of the documents we have been finding very useful include:</p><ul><li><a href="http://www.oaklandnet.com/Oil/pdfs/OIO-ActionPlan-020608.pdf" target="_blank">Oil Independent Oakland's Draft Final Report. </a></li><li><a href="http://www.tellus.org/Documents/Great_Transitions.pdf">Great Transition: the promise and lure of the times ahead</a>.<a href="http://www.oaklandnet.com/Oil/pdfs/OIO-ActionPlan-020608.pdf" target="_blank"> </a>An excellent look at scenario planning. </li></ul><p>The core idea is to create a vision for Totnes in 2030 in such a way that we can then backcast from that, so as to create a tangible and attractive road map to a lower energy world. It will involve the use of Transition Tales, and all kinds of creative tools.
