The theme of the State of the World Forum - 2020 Climate Leadership Campaign is - "Transforming Conversations that Matter into Actions that Make a Difference .... The 2020 Climate Leadership Campaign is designed to empower you to take action, to join with others similarly concerned, and to create models of climate leadership which can show the way to reducing our carbon emissions by 80% by 2020, which is essential to stop global warming. " The 7 goals include: Creating sustainable lifestyles and Establishing a culture of sustainable growth.
Transition is part of the agenda - though this group may not define it exactly as the Rob Hopkins and the Transition Movement does. Still this conference seems to be part of the same conversation.
This is a very expensive conference although the website says: "We are using an honor system so that each participant can come in at the fee level that is most appropriate." www.worldforum.org/2009pricing-registration.htm
