Introduction to Transition: Saturday 23rd June

2pm to 4pm on Saturday 23rd June at the Green Backyard, Oundle Road, Peterborough (next to the Apex building)

Come along to this free introductory course to find out more about Transition and the issues that drive it such as climate change, peak oil and economic instability, and meet some of the people who are already involved 🙂

Transition is a global movement that began in Devon in 2006. An experiment on a huge scale, it supports community-led responses to climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy, building resilience and happiness.

Peterborough in Transition is our local Peterborough Transition Initiative, formed in November 2011 and whose members are now offering these free introductory sessions for people to find out more about what Transition means for Peterborough.

**Who are Peterborough in Transition?**

We are a group of local residents working to make our city stronger and happier in the face of environmental, social and economic challenges. We have different skills and backgrounds but we are all actively engaged in the Peterborough community. We are people who are learning by doing – and learning all the time. People who understand that we can’t sit back and wait for someone else to do the work. People like you, perhaps…

**What is a Transition Initiative?**

It’s a place where there’s a community-led process that helps that town/village/city/neighbourhood become stronger and happier.

Transition is happening in well over a thousand highly diverse communities across the world – from towns in Australia to neighbourhoods in Portugal, from cities in Brazil to rural communities in Slovenia, from urban locations in Britain to islands off the coast of Canada
