‘Transition in the East’: a brilliant look at what’s rising in the East of England
Last Saturday, in spite of the atrocious weather, 55 people from 19 Transition initiatives across the east of England gathered in Diss in Norfolk for the second meeting of Transition East. Transition East is made up of Transition groups in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. In honour of the event, Charlotte Du Cann and Josiah Meldrum pulled together a really quite extraordinary document, “Transition in the East: co-operation, collaboration, support and influence”, which you can download here. It offers an extraordinary insight into what is happening there, the range of groups and what they are up to. It also includes a brilliant section on ‘Troubleshooting’, or as they put it, “everything you wanted to know about Transition but were too correct to ask…”, which looks at some of the common problems they are running into. It is an exemplary look at the spread of Transition on a regional scale.
