Managed by founder Tori Widdowson, Transition Events is a collection of experienced freelancers and partners in outdoor events, educational trips and community action.
After moving to the hamlet of Xiwuli in Houwu, Moganshan, in 2010, Tori set up a series of non-profit small-scale hilly triathlons and trail runs to bring people out into the fresh air. The first International School trips also started that first year, since when we have operated over 40 trips with multiple schools and trip providers. Our village of Houwu now plays host to other outdoors companies, which is great news for local guesthouses. We still operate International School trips on our home turf in Moganshan, offering the best balance of local culture, environmental awareness and outdoor activities for clients.
It was always our desire to bring more local students closer to nature, and offer them educational trips outside the classroom. This opportunity is just starting to blossom, and we are happy to change and grow to meet the new challenges this presents.
With UK Mountain Guide contacts, we are developing training capacity in China so that the myriad Summer Camps and Outdoor Bases will have staff with higher qualifications, to ensure continued safe and fun educational opportunities.
We are also expanding to include a few overseas trips, to provide experiences in a full English language environment.
