Event Description

‘Back to the Future’

Event at Te Awanga Hall Sunday 30th August 10-4

Fun Family Skills Sharing Day for a more sustainable future
What is it about : A community wide initiative based on the possibility that the future with less oil could be preferable to the present, if approached with creativity and proper planning’
Transition Towns is a concept that has been adopted by many people and countries throughout the world. The goal is to develop a plan to transition our community away from the use of fossil fuels towards a more sustainable environment. We can no longer afford to wait for governments to take action we need to develop community resilience now and find a positive path for dealing with the challenges our world now faces. By taking a step back and greatly reducing our reliance on power driven technology and recapturing those skills and practices that have slipped from our daily lives, we believe that things can be turned around. Life lived locally in tune with the seasons and our environment will give both the planet and future generations a greater chance of healthy survival.
Local money – local skills- local power
