Transition Circle West

Transition Circle West is open to anyone living in the west of Norwich who is interested in raising their awareness and cutting their carbon. The group meets monthly in each others houses. Meetings start with sharing food and then go onto the theme for the night, which can be energy in the home, stuff, travel, food, and how we can support each other to reduce our consumption and therefore our carbon footprint. The idea is to form neighbourhood groups - as each group attracts new members and grows too large to fit in a living room - it will split into two - so the Transition ethos will spread like cell division. In meetings so far we have collected and measured our use of household energy and created a baseline that we will measure again next year to see how we have reduced our energy consumption. Part of what the group does is share stories and experiences of how each of us lives, what is working, what is difficult, real lives making real changes.

UPDATE! In July 2010 Transition Circle West, having completed its discussions on the principle drivers of carbon reduction - energy, transport, food and "stuff" - split into two groups; Earlham South and Earlham North.
