Questions and Answers
We recognise that all transition initiatives are experimental: we are learning by doing. We like these words by a Spanish poet: "Traveler, there is no road. We make the road by walking"!
In 2008 we adopted the model of the worldwide 'Transition Network'. This model resonated with us because of its strong emphasis on localisation and its radical approach to environmental problems that includes more than just climate change.
The questions we ask ourselves are -
How do we make ourselves more resilient in the face of climate and resource crises?
How do we shift our entrenched beliefs?
How do we make a positive transition to a better future?
Some answers we're coming up with are -
- create local sources of energy
- grow food locally
- keep and support our local services
- re-learn old (e.g. manual) skills
- connect up across the community
- cooperate at every opportunity, and this is just the start...
We as the community are the experiment!
We look forward to working with you
