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.
WELCOME TO TRANSITION NORWICH...
We're part of a world-wide community movement in response to peak oil and climate change. This site gives you details of our up and coming events and meetings, as well as reports and related matters that are going on in Norwich and East Anglia.
An evening with Rob Hopkins, organised by Transition Swaffham, Transition Downham Market and Transition King's Lynn is happening at The Green Britain Centre in Swaffham on Thursday 4th July at 7pm.
Rob will be launching his new book The Power of Just Doing Stuff and engaging in a Q&A. We will also be building a picture of the stuff we are all doing in Norfolk so do come and help us fill in the maps! This is a really important opportunity for us to come together and think about how we can create a positive vision and transition for this great part of the world. If you are interested in helping out before the event, or on the night, please e-mail John Knock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be refreshments available and this will be a great chance to meet other like-minded people from around Norfolk. All welcome. (Ben Margolis)

hamlet in northern Greenland with just 59 inhabitants.
threat of relocation if their numbers fell below 50, the locals were
determined to reopen a local fish factory in order to stem the slow
exodus of their youngsters, and vowed to battle on against an
unsympathetic bureaucracy “until the last man’s left standing”. The
stark beauty of their harsh landscape and their equally harsh way of
life – they rely entirely on hunting and fishing, and the long winter
months are totally without daylight – contrast with their quirky humour
and robust traditions.Village at the End of the World is a portrait of a traditional community struggling against the challenges of globalisation and climate change.
