Outreach

Aims:

The aim of this project is to talk about Transition to as many Farnham groups and people as possible.

The aim of each conversation is to make people aware of the changes that are coming and what we as Transition Farnham are doing, so that the people we are talking to then decide to do whatever is right for them.

How to Get Involved:

If you are member of a group that would like us to come and speak to you, please contact us.

Why this matters:

The more people are aware of the challenges we face from climate change and peak oil, and the more people are aware of the positive opportunities that the Transition approach brings, the more people will choose to act to create the sort of future they want.

The more resilient Farnham will then become.

No individual, no single family, no single business or organisation can be resilient by itself. We only become resilient together, by forming links with others.

What we are doing:

We are contacting the groups and organisations that already exist in Farnham, to help them understand what is coming and what they can do about it.

Here is where we have got to:

One Response to Outreach

  1. This is a fabulous start to what is going to be a great year.

    The 6th form Colleges – All Hallows has it’s own 6th form – provide a great opportunity with courses in Tourism, Geography and Biology all offering curriculum links with Transition’s main themes, and with students at an idealistic age, keen to make a better job of it than their parents did.

    I will talk to Farnham College about how they would like us (TTF) to approach them, see how that goes and then follow up with All Hallows.

    There are also a wealth of other training providers locally who need to be ‘on the list’. I will track them down.

    The other person I have contacted already is the new Waverley Ranger at Farnham Park. He is very interested in what’s going on locally and with his out-reach mandate could get the Transition message out on on our behalf. I have offered to work with him as he gets into his programme.

    Keep up the good work Finn!

    Gayle
