Transition Towns

Last night at The Hub in York Way about twenty people met to discuss forming a Transition network in Kings Cross - something I think Living Streets could be involved with.

A Transition Town Belsize founder introduced the idea and how that group works together.

For King's Cross, several practical ideas were raised and workshopped;
  • Planting and growing food in an estate in Somerstown
  • Air quality improvement on Euston Road and on Taxi ranks
  • More sustainable transport, from buses to bikes and distributed garden storage (eg for BTCV Carbon Army volunteers)
  • A well-being group to keep communications, enthusiasm and group dynamics healthy
  • Anaerobic Digestion plant
  • A local currency
Lets see what happens next...
