Community Composting

It's not that difficult according to Nicky Scott (google him for videos, resources etc) who spoke at our meeting in February. It just needs a few people, some space near the street or flats concerned, and ideally a link with a community garden or place that can use the compost.  Local councillors can often provide start up funds.

Global Divestment Day February 14th

Fossil Free Divestment is the campaign to get our universities, pension funds, cities, banks and institutions to shift their investments from fossil fuels.

EU - US Trade Deal - Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

The trade deal currently being negotiated between the EU and the US poses a great threat to sustainability and much else. It will increase our dependence on fossil fuels, put big barriers in the way of localization and local authorities trying to promote this, and result in job losses in the EU which could reach 1 million.

A New Vision for Transport in Exeter

October's open meeting hosted by Transition Exeter's transport group proved to be positive and a worthwhile event with some useful contacts made. Chaired by Martyn Goss, the meeting started with a questionnaire for the audience on their transport habits and issues.

Rush Hour Transport in Exeter 2011 – 2026

Dear friends

Transition Exeter has achieved a great deal over the last few years – generating projects on food, energy and most recently, a local currency, holding public information meetings, conversations with Exeter City Council about transport plans, city growth, housing, and energy, and supporting anticonsumerist groups and skill sharing for low carbon lifestyles. There are also activities for families, in the Green Walks and Wildlife Watch sessions.
