Transition London initiatives gathering
By Ed Mitchell 30th March 2010
If you are in the London region, and available on Thursday April 1st between 18:30 and 20:30, we keenly recommend you pop along to the South Bank Centre for London’s ‘regional gathering’. It’s bound to be informative, connective, illuminating and fun.
Here is the invite from the London Transition Initiatives website:
There will be a gathering of London Transitioners at the South Bank Centre Thursday 1st April 2010 from 6.30-8.30pm. This is a chance for the London Transition Initiatives and Low Carbon Community Initiatives to get to know each other, to share ideas, experiences and London knowledge. The main theme for the evening will be Bioregions – we will be using this theme as a way for each of us to describe, explore and share our local areas. For example, what makes up the unique area and cultural identity of your part of London? What are the many layers of your locality – physically, culturally and geographically?
If you can please bring pens and (large) paper with you. The meeting will take place in the Level 5 Function Room (also known as the Chelsfield Room,on the West side of the building i.e. the Railway side). We can take drinks into the room with us and also food if you would like to bring. Please try and be there by 6.30pm so we can make most of our time together. We really look forward to seeing you all on Thursday!
Please RSVP to Chris
Other regional hub action
There is a powerful ‘regional’ theme developing in the UK – it is wonderful to see ‘regional hubs’ emerging with their variety of activities and events. Diffusing Transition across our regions is vital for us to support eachother sustainably so we couldn’t be happier about regional meetings happening.
Last year, regional meetings happened in The East and in The North, both of which provided initiatives with opportunities to meet up, share their issues and hopes, learn about eachother’s projects and more.
2010 started with a most excellent South East conference and we hear rumblings about a South West conference (any hints, anyone?).
