poster for "Inhabit"
This is on Wednesday 11th September, Quaker Meeting House, 6.30 to 9pm. 6.30 for free soup (it’s a bonus if you bring some food to share - if you can) The film starts soon after 7pm.
Inhabit. In association with Scalarama, Transition presents the movie “Inhabit” which is a feature length documentary introducing Permaculture: a design method that offers an ecological lens for solving issues related to agriculture, economics, governance, and on. The film presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people, and it translates the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience. For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what’s possible – what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.
INHABIT – dir. Costa Boutsikaris – 2015 – documentary – 1h 32mins
This event is part of Scalarama Merseyside 2019 - a celebration of cinema throughout September across Merseyside - more info
Transition Gathering / Symposium
title:- Taking Action against Climate Breakdown
For your diary, it’s Saturday 12 October 2019, from 9:30am – 4pm, at Liverpool Quaker Meeting House
This is a Trnsition North West Gathering hosted by Transition Liverpool
Join the local Transition Towns community for our annual gathering, a chance to look at problems caused by climate change and encourage active participation in developing solutions.
During this day-long event we will:
A light lunch will be provided with vegan and vegetarian soup, and desserts
- Take a look at the likely impact of fossil fuel use on our coastline as the area becomes more severely affected by sea level rises and storm surges
- Hear from local groups about their activities to give a picture of the important work collectively achieved during this Year of the Environment
- Seek to support and inspire each other as we make necessary changes to our individual lifestyles
- Discuss the steps we need to take to reduce emissions
- Explore how can we work with politicians in our local region to tackle climate breakdown
Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day
We will be accepting donations on the day towards lunch and the work of Transition Liverpool

National Transition Network.
The National network has been developing a funding bid to the National Lottery Community Fund for a 5 year programme developing regional and thematic networks in England, Wales and Scotland. As part of that bid, they have developed a survey to bring in as many voices from Transition across the Country as possible. The survey has gone out via a blog on transitionnetwork.org and has been emailed to all the contacts in the Country on TN's database. However, it has become evident that that doesn't mean its reaching out deeply enough. So here's the details:
Survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JFFM98H
Please complete by: Saturday September 7th
Please share with your groups and networks and really encourage people to go through it.
The survey may look quite long, but many of the questions are multiple-choice or use a sliding scale and you can whizz through it. We hope that as many people as possible from your group will fill in the survey! We need multiple perspectives and different experiences.
We undertake to report back and share with you an overview of the responses we receive. And as an incentive we offer a prize draw for three copies of Rob Hopkins’ new book From What Is to What If: Unleashing the Power of Imagination to Create the Future We Want – due to be published in October 2019.
