Transition Town Brixton is Recruiting Events Volunteers

Do you want to be part of promoting a more self-sufficient Brixton?

Are you inspired by meeting other people in the local community and coming up with our own solutions for a better future for the area?

Do you have experience of running events?

Our groups have been working hard over the last 5 years to grow food locally, produce renewable energy from solar panels and build a strong local economy through our very own local currency, the Brixton Pound.

We need creative dynamic self-starters to join us and coordinate some amazing events in 2013.

Our new volunteer events team will play a critical role in the Transition Town Brixton mission by raising local awareness of environmental and community issues. They will organise events where people will feel inspired, connect, share ideas and take action together.

The team, made up of experienced events co-ordinators and events assistants, will work with the existing TTB groups to design and implement a program of evening films nights, talks and workshops over 2013 including two major Transition Town Brixton day-long events.

We can handover ideas and useful contacts, but ultimately we are looking for self-starters who want to own and manage the program.
