The Low Carbon Show – Transition Towns Conference

Ruskin Mill

The Transition Towns concept is a grassroots, action model for making the
change to a low carbon future. It’s about designing the future and making it
positive rather than just waiting for it to happen. All the signs are that
it is a project that works and it’s spreading like a virus throughout the

towns projects recorded at the Transition Network inaugural conference. It
provides a snapshot of the many and diverse projects now underway.

Our pioneering interviewees include Naresh Giangrande – setting up community

Community Farm Land Trust; Dr Pamela Gray – asking ‘what will healthcare
look like in a post-oil world?’; Jo Hamilton – connecting all the climate
change resources in Oxfordshire with a view to engaging all sections of the
local community.
