Your Local Transition Town

“Want to meet other people locally who are willing to take positive action, share skills and create a positive local community in IG3 (Seven Kings and Goodmayes)?

Thursday 18th November
6pm to 8:30pm

Community gathering
Rakesh Aji is hosting a short film followed by a discussion, which could lead to the creation of a local social and environmental movement called a ‘transition town’. He recently spoke about sustainable resources at the Seven Kings Community Gathering.

Transition Town's are a global movement made up of local people who are passionate to help each other. The project is formed and totally driven by the community. What happens in the name of the project is totally driven by your passion, your skill, your willingness to step up and take action to make this a better world for all.

Other transition town initiatives have worked on areas such as:


- Food sovereignty (up-skill each other to grow your own food at home or in community spaces, food buyers coops, etc).

- Community food growing (community gardens or biodiverse rich low maintenance community forest gardening).

- Energy (sharing energy saving tips, forming your own local energy company, simple household insulation, etc).

- Transportation (encouraging the use of bikes, better local green transportation, etc).

- Health and well-being (many activities to help improve our physical and mental well-being).

- Waste management (reducing waste/landfill/plastics, recycling, composting, etc).

- Community building (all projects are done in a way to foster deep friendships and community).

- Collaborating with the Council (Supporting their climate emergency initiatives).


Venue
Join Rakesh on the 18th November at Climate Emergency Centre in Seven Kings (former Homebase), 706-720 High Road, Seven Kings, Ilford, IG3 8RS.
