‘Confronting Change’ at London’s South Bank Centre

‘Confronting Change’ at London’s South Bank Centre

A fantastic evening last night at the South Bank Centre in London, organised by Transition Finsbury Park. The event was a sell-out, and proved to be an inspirational coming together of London Transition initiatives, under the title “Confronting Change”.

...
How would it be, I suggested, if that narrative were a Transition one, that the intention were, by 2014 to have put in place:

2000 new urban market gardens, on land permanently excluded from future development, running as commercial enterprises but also with a training component

500 new ‘Food Hubs’, making local food available to poorer communities at cheaper-than-supermarket’ prices, modelled on Stroud’s ‘Stroudco’ food hub. These would be community-owned social enterprises

40,000 people trained in domestic retrofitting and energy efficiency, with a larger target of retrofitting every UK property by 2020

1 million fruit or nut bearing trees to be planted in, or around, our towns and cities, akin to the Millennium Forest project, but this time based on productive plantings

3,000 self-build schemes to be underway which use 80% local materials as a way of stimulating and creating a local economy around the production and processing of local building materials.
