Where: Newtown Community Centre
When: Wednesday 23rd of July, 7pm
On the 8th of July we screened the documentary 'A Crude Awakening' and as this meeting is the first since that, there will probably be some things from the documentary to discuss.
If people who are not very familiar with the Transition Towns concept, then we may talk about that for a while... Clearly the agenda for this meeting is still being finalised, so please feel free to add your own agenda items
updated 19 Jul 2008
If you intend to come to the meeting, please add agenda items below!
Ideas: Start the meeting in groups, defining TT and what its role is (come up with our own plan and ideas)
Come up with a possitive vision of the future and how it could be better than it is today
Go round each person and each say one thing we want to do personally
Come up with some positive action we can take as a group. like the idea of permablitz on willing peoples back yards. » Read more
About 55 people turned up on a very chilly Tuesday evening to watch 'A Crude Awakening'.
The discussion afterwards easily surpassed my expectations, I thought everyone would be pretty knocked out after 1.5 hours of sedentary film watching... I expect there will be even more at the next public meeting.
Huge thanks to Patrick for facilitation and the rest of the steering committee for the parts they played in pulling everything together!
