Groups

Groups are forming to create specific chapters in the Brixton Energy Descent Action Plan. They will vision a better low energy future as it concerns their focus area and then ‘backcast’ to the present to produce the routemap to that future with timetable and milestones. This will involve much research into what is possible and what can be made possible. Ideally it will also produce pioneering visible projects that inspire and point the way towards a sustainable future.

TTB is made up of several independant groups. For information about each group visit the relevant group page.

Anyone wanting to convene a working group on any topic (listed or not) please contact info@transitiontownbrixton.org and we will endeavour to put you in touch with like minds.
