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.
