Transition Circles are neighbourhood groups supporting individuals to make practical transitions to reducing energy consumption, sharing experiences of what's working and what's difficult in making real changes.
Are you involved in a community project? Want people to know?
We're part of a world-wide community movement in response to peak oil and climate change. This site gives you details of all our up and coming events and meetings, as well as reports, previews of films and books and related matters that are going on in Norwich and East Anglia.
On 21 July a group of TN members agreed to form a "collaborative community" of people taking practical steps to reduce our carbon and environmental footprint, whilst living the positive vision of the world we want to create. After our first large and exhuberant gathering of midsummer, this was a sober meeting as befits the beginning of a bold and committed enterprise. We discussed our ideals, our aspirations, our doubts, what personal actions we had already made in the face of climate change (ranging from reduced use of water and fuel, cycling to work, almost zero waste) and how we should log our personal carbon footprints and make connections with other groups embarking on similar explorations. We decided to meet in two Transition Circles (TC West and The Strangers) during August, so we could swap stories and start building a co-operative network of people and resources, as well as map out what a low-carbon way of life might look like. If you want to join us, do come to our next open meeting on Sept 3 at Inner Space! Bring food to share. NB 7pm start not 7:30.
