Tuesday 1st May at the Trinity Centre, Easton

Rob Hopkins, originator of the Transition Town approach will give a talk on how this model is effectively engaging communities in tackling climate change and preparing for Peak Oil.

In an introduction Patrick Holden, director of the Soil Association will explain why he is working towards Transition in his home town of Lampeter.

A practical, positive and inclusive process, Transition is about planning and acting for change now to create a resilient and vibrant city for the future. Creating an Energy Descent Plan will involve looking at all aspects of our energy use including food, transport,
housing, electricity production, waste and water. The process of finding solutions involves everyone – not just the experts.
With Transition Towns springing up across the country, Bristol is the first UK city to take environmental change into its own hands.

Come and find out what inspired Transition City Bristol…and where it might go from here. A discussion afterwards will ask how you would like to see Bristol change for the better.
