Opening Out - TN2 and the new Transition Circles

The TN2 group began in July with a focussed discussion about 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 carbon adn ecological footprints and make connections with other groups embarking on similar explorations. Since then we have been rippling outwards meeting in three neighbourhood groups (Circle West, Stranger's and Transition City Lunch). These new groups are known as Transition Circles. the main hub is known as TN2.

In our main meeting in September fourteen of us began to 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. We also decided to base each of our subsequent TC meetings on the principle carbon- cutting themes of energy, transport and food. Our next meetings will be based on Electricity. So "get the bills out" and come along and find out how we can all reduce our electricity use and still keep our (inner) lights switched on (Charlotte Du Cann/TC Stranger's)

Transition Circle West met for the first time in August and has committed to monthly meetings. We plan to meet in each others houses and to share food, ideas and support for ways of reducing our carbon footprint. We made a start by using a range of carbon calculators to see where we are now and where we would like to be in a years time. (Helen Wells/TC West)

Transition City Lunch Circle This new Transition Circle is for anyone who lives, works, shops or has a regular connection with the city during the day and would like to join a Transition Circle. These Transition Circles are groups of individuals committed to supporting each other in reducing their carbon footprint and leading an enjoyable low energy life style. As the plan is to create a sociable event as well as a constructive business meeting we will meet at lunchtime and share food. The first meeting will be in Christine’s flat at Inner Space on Monday 12 October at 12.30. 01603 614460 or transition@phonecoop.coop for more information (Christine/TC City Lunch)

If you want to join us, do come to our next meetings and bring food to share. Please check the calendar for dates and venues.
