Millennium Babies Project wins CUE East funding

The Millennium Babies Project team is delighted to report that we've won a funding award from CUE East to develop the Oil Game, in partnership between members of Transition Norwich, UEA and local schools. The inspiration for the Oil Game was the Transition Tales project on peak oil, Transition Norwich's Resilience Plan and creative workshops with Year 6 children. The original Oil Game was invented by Rob Hopkins and developed by Steph Bradley. Tom Harper and Charlotte Du Cann used this format as a base when they played the first TN Oil Game at Catton Grove school last year.

Tom, creative director of the project, says: "This is fantastic news for us. This prestigious award enables us to expand our innovative programme of work with children in Norwich schools. With our partners, we'll be exploring sustainability issues in a fun and creative way. The children will discover the extraordinary story of how dinosaur poo and ancient sunshine became the oil that we use today, and how, during their lifetimes, they will have to find creative new ways to live well without this ancient resource!".
