Today sees the start of the Festival of Transition, “an invitation to think positively about how our lives could change as we adapt to the end of cheap fossil fuels, address the threat of runaway climate change and fix our broken financial system.”
The organisers share my belief that ‘there is no alternative’ is a load of nonsense, and that there are “endless examples” of how things can be different and better. The festival will explore and celebrate some of those ways, through a series of events, walks and social experiments. On June 20th the festival will mark 24 hours of possibility, when people will be encouraged to try something different for the day.
The list of partners in the festival includes plenty of familiar faces – the New Economics Foundation, the Transition Network, Streetbank, and the Move Your Money campaign among them.
