3Mar2010: Transition farms

Avoiding the perfect storm

Transition towns need Transition farms

3rd March 2010
Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester

SEMINAR PROGRAMME

Setting the scene
A talk on the hotly debated issue of climate change and the consequential effects will explore one of the fundamental reasons why transition towns and farms are so important.

Transition Towns
What it means and how increased localisation can and is a realistic option for us all, co-operating and uniting local communities.

Transition Farms
Localising food production and consumption, linking the growers with the consumers is at the heart of transition. Communities and producers will illustrate the problems in a post peak oil scenario and their solutions.

Globalisation
A look at the transition movement from a global perspective.

Registration will open at 10:00 in the foyer outside the Parkinson Lecture Theatre and tea and coffee will be offered. At 10:30 the formal programme will start,
ending at 16:00.

The communities that are undergoing the transformation are doing so in partnership with local producers. Localising food production and consumption, linking the growers with the consumers is at the heart of transition. The problems facing the producers in a post peak oil scenario will be discussed from those who are acting now. Their experience and knowledge is relevant to all those involved in transition towns and farms.

The final aspect of the seminar will be a look at the problems and solutions from a global perspective. We will then have the opportunity to have our questions answered by the experts.
