Title: Transition network
Post by: idunno on November 02, 2013, 12:27:26 PM
Not strictly INDIVIDUAL, as per the criteria for this section, but then that's the point; I thought that some people here may not have come across the Transition Network,

This aims to help communities transition to a lower-carbon future, by taking practical steps in the present. It seems to me that this focus on COMMUNITY efforts is potentially much more effective.

Anyway, I don't speak for the Transition Network. that would be Rob Hopkins, interviewed here;

They have a website here:

As luck would have it I live just up the road from Totnes, where they have their own currency:

However they don't yet have their own wind farm:
