Becoming carbon neutral is only the beginning. The climate problem will not be solved by one company reducing its emissions to zero, and it won't be solved by one government acting alone. The climate problem will not be solved without mass participation by the general public in countries around the globe.
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.
