The Norwich Independent Climate Change Commission has been created by the City Council and others to consider how the city should respond to the threat of climate change. And they want to know what we think. The consultation ends on Feb 12th - quite soon! Please do consider making your own response. There's a consultation document which you can download from the City Council website (http://www.norwich.gov.uk/) - click on the "eco issues" link and then on the NICCC link. You can respond to one, a couple, or all of the themes and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also do mention that you're part of Transition Norwich - it can only help to raise our profile!
In addition we are hoping that, as Transition Norwich, we will get an opportunity to present in person to this Commission. In particular we will tell them about our early experiences with Transition Circles and Carbon Conversations (groups in which people support each other in looking at reducing their individual carbon footprints), and we may propose a big expansion of these (see book review of Social Change 2.0, below). We will of course also tell them about the work of our theme groups, the development of the Resilience Plan, and all the other great work you've all been doing (Tully Wakeman/Core Group)
