Hello fellow Transition Towners and folk who have recently registered interest through Nicole Foss or the Big Pineapple!
Transition Nambour had monthly meetings over the last couple of years. Since taking on the Big Pineapple Markets TT stall during our summer recess a few things have changed in people’s lives, and we are instead hosting a number of community events.
The next one for this year will be in April: a pot luck dinner followed by an open space ‘conversation’ to discuss where we might focus our energies and attention during the rest of the year.
We welcome folk from beyond (greater Nambour) who are just interested or are getting ready to launch other local Transition groups. It could be a rich and vibrant evening!
Venue to be confirmed and it will be Tuesday April 17th, in Nambour. 5.30 for dinner (pot luck) – 8.30 .
We recently had a stall at the Montville Sustainability Fair, and this resulted in an invitation to offer a positive Transition perspective at the Coal Seam Gas rally at Mapleton last Sunday.
At a meeting this week themed ‘Small is Beautiful’ and hosted by Nambour Community Centre the Open Space process came up with 3 topics: transport, ‘having no friends’, and transition equipment (stuff that does not require fossil fuels or power)
We’d like to remind people about preferential voting if you are voting in the State Election. You don’t have to ‘just vote one’. On the contrary, it is our democratic right to put preferences, and in the case of closely contested seats, or where there are Independent candidates it can make a huge difference.
