Film 'The End Of Suburbia' — Sunday 11th October

The End Of SuburbiaA film presented by 'Transition Crookes/Walkley'

"With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The End of Suburbia explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of fossil fuels are upon us now, some scientists and policy makers argue in this documentary."

The film will be followed by informal discussion - a chance to get to know each other, find out about Transition Sheffield, and to talk about energy security and the implications of Peak Oil for Sheffield.

7.30pm, Walkley Community Centre, 7a Fir Street, Walkley, Sheffield S6 3TG, UK Free / donations

International Day of Climate Action - Saturday October 24th Saturday October 24th is the International Day of Climate Action to highlight the number 350: "350 is the most important number in the world--it's what scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere".

Several of us in Heeley Meersbrook have signed up to the 10:10 campaign and pledge to cut our carbon emissions by 10% by the end of 2010. We are encouraging everyone to sign. This applies to individuals, organisations, our City, our Government. To make our point, we are inviting everybody, adults and children, to come to the Energy Centre dressed in blue if possible, and we will make the 10:10 logo on the grass outside with our bodies. It will make a great photo from the dizzy heights of the Energy Centre! And, people can get ideas from the Energy Centre about how they can cut that 10% (see below).

Noon, Saturday 24th Oct South Yorkshire Energy Centre, Heeley City Farm, 25 Alexandra Road, S2 3EE.

2009 Transition Conference Report

The 3rd national Transition Conference was held at Battersea Arts Centre on 22nd-24th May 2009. This is Craig's report on it for The Friend magazine.

The Transition movement has a good claim to being the fastest-growing social movement in the UK. From its origins just 4 years ago in the small town of Totnes in Devon, it has grown into 170 'official' Transition initiatives, with hundreds of others at the 'mulling' stage across the UK and in over other 30 countries.

Transition Heeley / Meersbrook Summer Events

Transition Heeley / MeersbrookSummer Events

Transition Heeley / Meersbrook has organised a series of events for June and July.

These include the Community Supported Agriculture project, which is looking at the possibility of using some land in the Moss Valley for growing food.

A meeting on home insulation and energy security will consider how we are going to heat our homes without fossil fuels. This is a crucial issue since by 2020 the UK will be almost totally dependent on gas imports.

The Heeley-Meersbrook Local Food Initiative has a tour of the local allotments planned and also a follow up meeting about growing, harvesting and sharing locally grown food.

Read on for the details of these meetings...
