It’s been full on this summer as the blog crew have tackled the hot topics of Deep Nature, Health in Transition, Gatherings, the Transition Conference and High Summer (well perhaps not so hot) as well as our monthly Transition Themes group reports.
In May we were delighted and dismayed when one of our top bloggers, Kerry left Norwich for a great Transition job in Glasgow. At the same time we welcomed aboard Simeon Jackson, mover and shaker behind TN’s new style Economics and Livelihoods and Outreach initiatives.
We also started an occassional cross-posting from local and Transition blogs: Adrienne Cambell from TTLewes on Swarmcatchers, Mark Crutchley of the OneWorldColumn on the state of the oceans, Rachel Lalchan of Ecomonkey on giving up supermarkets, Olivia Heal of La Bonne Bouffe on Lacto-Fermentation. Chrissie Godrey from TT Taunton and one of the Conference storytellers, related the End of the Tail.
Meanwhile our regular reporters have carried on contributing daily on all subjects under the sun bringing attention and giving value to all aspects of our downshfiting culture that’s rarely covered by mainstream media. Becoming the Media is one of the Ingredients in Rob Hopkin’s soon-to-be published, The Transition Companion. It’s been the key driver behind This Low Carbon Life and has provided the inspiration (and format) for the upcoming national Social Reporting pilot. We’re launching this Transition community blog on the Network site in September. Watch that space! Charlotte Du Cann
