Transition Town Christchurch wants to see Christchurch becoming more resilient and sustainable. With resources and energy under increased pressure, communities need to get together to re-shape their priorities.

March saw Global Climate Change Week and Earth Hour,
and our April TTC event follows on from that focus on the planet.

Come and join in. This promises to be a very thought-provoking evening.

“ Mankind's 10,000 years of disregard for Mother Nature”

There is a growing feeling that something is wrong with our collective lifestyles, and that we are on a collision course with the environment. Green issues and Ethics have become buzz-words. But maybe we are missing the point. Colin goes back to basics:

“ Since the first agricultural revolution 10, 000 years ago, we have had a completely ambivalent attitude to our environment and to Nature. A better understanding of this relationship could help us improve our collective quality of life.” He invites you to discuss and question the dynamics between human actions, Nature and Ethics.

Free event, refreshments available.
