Migration Timeline

The following is only to give a flavor of the migration of AVP, and is not accurate information on when AVP programs actually started. Some entries are when people first took AVP to an area, as a presentation, mini-workshop, or workshop, and a program may have started years later or not at all. These are primarily gleaned from issues of the Transformer, and not all of such mention have been listed here (and some important ones were simply missing). Not all trial workshops or even established programs have continued to the present. If you have additional or corrected information, please feel free to contact me at couchdouglas@aol.com. See also the country-by-country REPORTS at the 2006 International Gathering (be aware the some AVP project have started and ended before these reports).
