Back in October, we saw the launch of “Sustainable Letchworth”. This is a forum consisting of representatives from Transition Town Letchworth, the Letchworth Heritage Foundation, Letchworth Garden City Society and residents who are sustainability professionals.
The aim of Sustainable Letchworth is to act as a central hub for networking between the many organisations who will all need to work together to build a sustainable town. Sustainable Letchworth will be leading the collaborative exercise to create a Sustainablity Strategy for our Garden City; to oversee and encourage the changes required to build resilience in our local economy, our energy supply, our food chain, our housing and more besides.
We were lucky to have Jonathon Porritt speak at the launch and the footage of his speech is available below. It’s a very sobering talk on the importance and urgency of action, together with the advantages we have within the Garden City model – if only we will seize it! Enjoy!
