Talk by David Hepper of Population Matters
Thursday 24th January at 1900 in the Council Chamber of GBC Millmead Offices, Millmead, Guildford GU2 4BE.
David comments on his talk “that in discussions of man-made climate change some commentators either make soothing noises to discount the effects of ever-rising global population or wave their hands in the air as if the problem is too hard or too politically sensitive to be faced. Others find this a cop-out”. David Hepper’s talk will look at ways of reducing our individual carbon footprints through various kinds of “green living”, before proposing acceptable national and international policies that can help to defuse the “population bomb”.

Talk by Dr Tom Lankester
Wednesday 16th January 2019
7.30 – 9.30 pm at Alton Community Centre
Amery Street, GU34 1HN
When Tom and his wife bought their house in Farnham in 1997, they wanted to see what could be done with a fairly standard 80s “box”. They have achieved significant reductions in carbon emissions and improved comfort too. Come and find out how they did it!
All welcome. Free entry. Bar.
Informal Lunch time chats at The Spire Cafe, South Street, through months of January and February.
Where can Farnham go in the 2020s? How can the concept of transition and localisation be taken forward? How are they relevant to building a vibrant future for Farnham?
We’ll be at the cafe from 12 noon – 2.00pm on the 9th & 23rd Jan and the 6th & 20th February. Come and join us for an informal, unscripted chat over lunch.
For more information, contact: Rob 07796 176086 or Guy 07425 193847
We hope to initiate a process that will allow us to recognise emerging needs in Farnham and then to empower us to imagine positive, community-led ways to respond.
Framing this process in the context of transition and localisation enables us to move from one pattern of growth to another: to make a control shift from transactional values to more transformational ones where individual flourishing for all is the defining feature of a vibrant community.
Your invitation to Green Drinks with Transition Farnham, next Tuesday, 15th November, 7.30 pm
The Albion, 1 Hale Rd.
Please come along to this month’s Green Drinks as we need to have a full discussion about how Transition Farnham goes forward into 2017.
Although the Hive project is not going to happen now, we have, in the process, re-structured TTF as a Small Charity. This does not mean we are a registered charity, but simply that we are a properly constituted community group, and as such able to apply for grants. Our accounts are in good order, thanks to Chris Holmes, and we have a properly functioning account with Lloyds Bank.
So we now need you to help us explore how you think TTF could best deliver on our Transition objectives for Farnham.
Please come along: the future of Transition Town Farnham is in your hands!
