How do we tackle the causes of Climate Change? We do what we can as individuals – turn the lights off in the rooms we are not using – walk or use public transport rather than drive – insulate our homes – generate some electricity… not nearly enough.
We can get together in communities, and achieve much more – hence the Transition Initiatives of which TTL is but one, but an important one for this community because it is our community.
But action is needed at a national and international level too. In our democracy, government can only do stuff with the permission of the electorate. When Jubilee 2000 surrounded the G8 at Gleneagles in 1998, Gordon Brown commented that this allowed him to get a much better debt cancellation deal than would otherwise have been the case.
In September heads of state are going to New York City for a historic summit on climate change. With our future on the line, we will take a weekend and use it to bend the course of history.
In London the march will begin at Temple at 12.30pm on Sunday 21st September. Let’s be there! Contact us to share travel plans.
