Futures Forum: Transition Network >>> Regional workshop South West >>> Exeter 23rd September > sign up!
Here's a very handy report from Transition Exmouth in their latest newsletter:
On our behalf, Carol Jay attended the Transition Regional Hub SW discussion at Palace Gate Exeter on 23rd Septemver. Here is her report:
'Twelve representatives of Transition groups from Exeter, Plymouth, Blackdown Hills, Totnes and Tooting joined Exmouth's own Sarah Ward and Carol Jay at a day-long workshop to discuss a Regional Transition hub for the South West .
It was inspiring to meet representatives of so many different Transition groups from Devon & Somerset , and to hear about projects including Eco Housing , community orchards, community energy and transport initiatives.
At the end of the day, Exeter and Totnes members had volunteered to collate contact information among SW Transition groups .
Various offers of mutual support were put forward , for instance Totnes would welcome other Transition groups as well as the wider public on trips they run to their projects.
Blackdown Hills and Plymouth representatives offered to collate information on existing Green Routes/ Community Orchards/ etc , with a view to working together to link up Green Corridors across the South West . Carol expressed Exmouth Transition's interest in such a project, and agreed to discuss this with Anne Marie Culhane.
The Tooting representative , Richard Coudrey, is part of the South East Transition Hub, and has been involved with ten similar workshop days across England and Wales. (Scotland Transition Hub has separate funding). He reported budding Regional Transition Hub connections emerging from these workshops. Richard is writing a thesis on the way Transition can support local sustainable initiatives, and is part of a group working on a National Transition Hub.
