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:
