Richard Heinberg Auckland Presentation

Richard Heinberg's quest for a more resilient, sustainable, and healthy future comes to New Zealand thanks to the Post Carbon Institute, Grey Lynn 2030 and Sustainable Business Network.

Richard will bring his challenging and compelling message. He'll ask — and answer — some of the most challenging questions we face:

TTNZ Notice Board (on Facebook)

From time to time someone asks if they can post a notice on this site, to advertise something. It might be a land deal, an upcoming event, or in the most recent case an off-the-grid house for rent.

Because of the enormous success of a Facebook group (Waiheke Trading), that was started in December and now has 1200 people on it, trading like crazy, I thought it was worth giving this a go for the Transition Towns community.

It's an experiment, and I've kicked it off with a nice 3-bedroom off-the-grid home in Kaitaia, that's being offered for rent. If you're interested, ave a look at the TTNZ Notice Board on Facebook. If you're interested and don't use Facebook, then ask a friend who does, to look it up and show you.
