TLA Speaker's bureau

Looking for speakers or presentations on the Transition movement? Need someone for a booth or table at your fair or event? You've come to the right place. TLA's Speakers Bureau was created to share the experiences of our Transition Los Angeles group with local communities.

Our Speakers

Our speakers are "grassroots veterans," active in implementing Transition Initiatives both in their local communities and in our TLA area-wide efforts. These individuals are well-versed not only in the problems (climate change, peak oil, and biocapacity), but also their potential solutions (relocalization, reduced consumerism, reskilling, and the 12 steps of Transition). Many of our speakers have attended a Training for Transition given by the international Transition Network.

Our Topics

When Transition Los Angeles speakers give a presentation -- whether it's 15 minutes or more than an hour -- we always try to cover the following:
  • Why peak oil and climate change must be considered simultaneously
  • Why rebuilding community resilience is as important as cutting carbon emissions
  • Another world is possible: the power of a positive vision, and the progress already underway
Transition Los Angeles speakers can talk about a number of environmental issues, depending on the level of knowledge of your group. No matter what the specific title of the talk is, we always try to work in the above points.
