Charts from Spring Conference2014

The charts (linked to below), were produced in “open space” workshops at our Spring Conference in March.

These produced lively discussions about climate change and people’s attitude to it, a wide ranging exploration of food systems, the support available from Transition Network, the challenge of encouraging and supporting volunteers, and the potential of  linking wind power and electric biking.

Mike Thomas from Transition Network was a speaker at our Spring Conference, and has written about it in his blog, as reported in the latest Transition Network newsletter-

“Powys Networking Day

Powys in Transition has gained funding to setup a regional network of local organisations involved in Transition or Low Carbon Communities. Mike Thomas went along to the launch event.”

What IS PTLCC??

Powys Transition and Low Carbon Communities network is an organisation formed to connect and support groups throughout Powys which are involved in promoting community resilience and in exploring ways in which we can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. “Transition” is also about creating vibrant communities, helping us all become involved, promoting locally grown food, community energy projects, all kinds of creativity, and reducing waste.  You can find out more about the Transition Movement here..  http://www.transitionnetwork.org/what

PTLCC has recently been awarded Big Lottery funding as part of the Connecting Voices project, which will enable us to provide Transition training courses and to organise conferences.  We held our first training event in January this year, and our first conference in April.

We are currently planning our next exciting conference on Saturday, November 8th (watch this space for more details!)  so put that in your diary now!.
