New and local: Transition Streets

Our new project, Transition Streets, kicked-off yesterday with excellent training from the experts from Totnes.  Our first batch of local initiators found out what it involves to run a group on their street whilst our steering group learned more about co-ordinating the project.

This new project, funded by the Big Lottery, helps groups of 6-8 neighbours to work together to  cut their energy use, cut their household bills, and have fun along the way.  To learn more, go to the Streets section of this website, or contact us on streets@transitionstalbans.org.

 

 

Film screening of In Transition 2

We screened “In Transition 2.0”; an inspirational insight in to the transition movement around the world.  We saw communities coming together to plant veg, launch their own currencies, make their own solar power, … and building a much stronger sense of community along the way.

If you were there then thanks for coming along!  If you want to know more, come along to the new members evening on Wed 16th Jan (see Events).
