Our next meeting will be this Thursday at 6pm in the Arts Centre. The reading we’ll be discussing, linked below, is a product of a research project called grassroots sustainability, more information about which can be found here: http://grassrootsinnovations.org/
Growing grassroots innovations: exploring the role of community-based initiatives in governing sustainable energy transitions, by Gill Seyfang & Alex Haxeltine: http://grassrootsinnovations.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/environ-plann-c-2012-seyfang.pdf
The reading ties in to several of the ideas we’ve discussed lately, such as the role of individual and community actions and whether these are worthwhile or their impact can even be measured compared with the idea that there needs to be much larger scale system-wide transformation. We look forward to another good discussion on Thursday! As always, everyone is welcome so do come along if you are interested.
