How can we really change stuff?

Wednesday 5th July, 7.30pm (doors 7pm) at the Depot Cinema, Lewes. Tickets £10 (£5 concession) available from Lewes Depot Includes complimentary drink.

Transition Town Lewes is 10 years old. You are warmly invited to join in the celebrations as TTL asks a panel of writers, economists and local activists the big question: In a world facing its most urgent challenges yet, how can we effect change for the better and do it fast?

Taking lessons of rapid transition from history and current examples of how local communities are working to transform lives, we hope to discover that the solutions to issues like climate change, resource scarcity and social inequality may not be as far away as we often think.

Held in Lewes’ stunning new eco-built Depot community cinema and restaurant, with live music from funk reggae band Bring Back the Wolf plus seasonal food and drink available, it’s going to be a lively, inspiring and thought-provoking evening – and we’d love you to be there.

Our panel of speakers are:

Andrew Simms – Author of ‘Cancel the Apocalypse’, ‘Tescopoly’ and co-director of the New Weather Institute

Howard Johns – Community energy champion, founder of Ovesco and author of ‘Energy Revolution’

Alex Kirby – Former BBC Online environmental correspondent and a founder editor of Climate News Network

Helen Meade – Community co-ordinator for the Lewes Railway Land Trust

Zoe Wangler – Executive director of the Ecological Land Co-operative
