The time for seeing globalisation as an invincible and unassailable behemoth, or localisation as some kind of lifestyle choice, is over. The end of the Age of Cheap Oil is rapidly coming upon us, and life will radically change whether we want it to or not.
The Transition Buxton Steering group was, like most Transition intiative steering groups, a temporary thing. The aim was for the various sub-groups (food, transport, energy etc.) to fledge, to grow and to develop their own meaningful projects. This is now starting to happen, and the original Steering Group was therefore dissolved at the first AGM in August 2010. We are confident that the enthusiasm generated by a few successful projects will create a tidal wave of activity, as the people of Buxton all join in, and sweep the town to a bright, resilient future. Yo!
At Jean's this time.
