Transition Town Stoke Newington
Our aim is to empower ourselves and our community to deal creatively and positively with the environmental and social challenges that lie ahead. We will do this by first raising awareness of those challenges, which include climate change, peak oil and economic uncertainty, and then unleashing the collective genius of the community to come up with our own solutions.
We believe that a Stoke Newington which is less dependent on fossil fuels and less destructive to the environment is not only possible but that it can be a place that is more abundant and fulfilling to live in.
We are striving to include all parts of our community, working together towards a collective vision – a future in which we all have a say in designing and a stake in creating.
Along the way we will be enabling the re-skilling that is needed, knowledge sharing, forming groups with specific interests (such as the buildings group who run this refurb project), networking with people and organisations, putting together an energy descent plan for Stoke Newington. And having a lot of fun.
