Making February the month of L&OVe
With Valentines in the air, we'd like to make February a month in which L&OVe reaches out to our local councils - with a motion to put nature at their hearts.
L&OVe for our Neighbourhood continues; as does L&OVe's support for Phoenix Rising and looking forward; to Lewes Water Fair in March with L&OVe.
George Marshall's TED Talk
Stories are all-important - we are story-telling beings. George Marshall says 'observe the discrepancy between what we know and what we believe and what we do.' Belief, not knowledge, is what constructs the stories we tell ourselves and determines our behaviour. Dirk Campbell

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!
