Saturday 7th January, 10am-12pm
Highgate Newtown Community Centre – cafe
Happy New Year! If your New Year’s resolution is to eat more locally, get out in the garden, finally start cycling and drive less, or to switch to energy efficient lightbulbs, then start 2012 in the right way by coming along to our projects ‘open space’ on Saturday and finding others to join you in those low-carbon lifestyle changes.
Transition Initiatives create practical, high visibility examples in their communities which can show people what a low energy future could look like. When we do things together we can share skills with each other, learn what works and make cutting carbon a lot more positive and enjoyable.
Some examples of projects started by other Transition Initiatives are:
Community food growing, cycle training, sash window ‘draught busting’, local fruit tree mapping, foraging and wild food cooking, vegetable bag schemes, sewing and knitting clubs, and kids creative sessions.
We have lots of ideas for projects but can’t wait to hear yours. We’re holding an ‘open space’ meeting because this is a way that everyone can shout out project ideas, form groups to discuss them, and come back together at the end over tea and cake to share what we want to go ahead with.
Hope to see you there.
