Transition Wilmslow is holding a Landscape Strategy Workshop this Friday, 14th December from 7-9 pm in the Wilmslow leisure centre upstairs meeting room. We will be holding an interactive workshop to plan our future approach and work on this project.
We would like to get as many people as possible involved as we feel that the work could both impact on, and benefit from, contributions from a number of groups in the Wilmslow transition family. It is not an academic exercise as the applications from the work could help shape our views on proposals for furthering our Transition aims developing a sustainable town and lifestyle. This is well illustrated in an extract from a recent note from John Handley who was at a recent conference where Jonathan Porritt spoke:
Jonathan’s prescription for a sustainable 21st century town included:
1) Zero carbon;
2) “Incredible edible” with community supported agriculture and local sourcing of food;
3) Biodiversity rich;
4) Healthy living – planning actively for good health.
5) Sustainable transport.All of which fit well into the Transition model.
You may also have noticed from a two page spread the 6th December edition of the Wilmslow Express in an article about the Wilmslow Trust meeting on an alternative Wilmslow vision that Transition Wilmslow was mentioned as a possible partner group to support this work.There are a number of threats and opportunities out there for us to consider and to allow us to put a Transition shape on this agenda and identify the future work we want to do to further our aims for both the Transition agenda generally and the town. Part of the workshop will canvas opinions on what these opportunities and threats are and what we might want to do This is an opportunity for Transition Wilmslow members to have their input.
Please come along and give us your views.
