A proposal by Ann Link
|I have recently been inspired by the examples of York, Croydon and Brighton declaring themselves Living Wage cities and towns and I want to gauge support in TTL.
Is it a ‘campaign’ (with political charge & therefore possibly not for us?) or is it a ‘citizen response to transform society’ (in which case may be relevant to Transition initiatives – see below)
This is a current issue since Living Wage Week is November 2nd to 8th - please respond and give your views. Read more...
|L&OVe AGM – date set for Thursday 27 November 2014, 7.30 p.m. at the Rights of Man, Martyr’s Bar (at the back).|
We’d really welcome new-comers to the group and/or those who would just be interested to hear what we’re doing, been doing and planning to do, as well as usual core members. PLEASE put the date in your diary and come along if you can.
Lewes Pound Monthly Meeting
7.30pm, Tuesday 11th November, Rights of Man Pub, Lewes.
Please come & join us - together we can make a real difference!
We have identified some next steps for the Lewes Pound and now need to look at putting them into practice with the support of our Transition community. There will also be feed back from the Conference of Independent Currencies to be held in Bristol on 3rd and 4th November. Susan Murray will be attending on behalf of the Lewes Pound.
What is Transition?
|When with TTL recently, Rob Hopkins asked people "What is Transition?". Here's what they told him...|
Transition Town Lewes (TTL) is a network of Lewes people. We’re working on local solutions in response to the global problems of climate change, economic change and the end of cheap energy and other resources.
Please get in touch if you would like to meet some of the people involved in project work for TTL.
And don't forget to subscribe to the TTL monthly newsletter to keep up to date with our news and events.
Transition is about the creation of resilient communities. It's not about campaigning but designing. It's about putting in place systems that will help us to deal with the big changes that are on the way. Those changes will be in three main areas: energy, the economy and the environment. Read more and get linked in to the bigger picture!
