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.
Several people lamented how it was all nice and productive to focus on the agenda items during Transition meetings, but it resulted in us not knowing each other very well, and so we decided to hold a purely social get together on 15 December at the Alexandra Cafe. About 8 people came and although the temperature was a bit excessive for many of us who have turned down our heating at home as much as we can stand, it was a great success and we decided to continue having them. The next one will be on the 15th again in January from 7pm in the Alexandra again. We decided on the 15th so that those who couldn't make it because it was on a Tuesday in December hopefully will be able to come on Friday 15 January. We haven't discussed yet whether we want to keep going to the Alexandra or will rotate pubs as we rotate days of the week, or maybe meet at people's houses instead. If you can't make it but want to make a suggestion for the February date or venuehttp://lgmacweb.env.uea.ac.uk/green_ocean/positions/Buitenhuis/feedback.htmldo get in touch. (Erik Buitenhuis)
