Transition Valley 473

β€œIs our community resilient enough to stand up to energy, climate and economic shocks?” – this was the topic of a public meeting attended by about 70 people on 12 February at the North East Valley Baptist Church.

Two short film clips were shown about community actions in the UK and Cuba, followed by Dugald and Alison MacTavish talking about peak oil, climate change and the responses of people in Hampden, North Otago, to strengthen their community.

This was the first of several planned meetings, film screenings and activities organised by the Transition Valley 473 group.

Jens talks to the meeting.
