Transition Opportunities (aka volunteer vacancies!)

Can you help us?

We urgently need help with the following. Please get in touch for more information if you're interested!

Transition Cafe organizers

We are hoping to get the Transition Cafe up and running again. Our cafe nights are ways for new people to come and find out what Transition Cambridge is about, for regulars to come along and have a chat, and for us to offer a range of events and activities as people offer them or ask for them. We'd like a team of people to help run these evenings, from helping with the cafe, to organising the speakers/films, to advertising etc. If you could help with any of these tasks (or something else we haven't thought of), either occasionally or regularly, we'd love to hear from you!

Bulletin editors

There are currently 3 of us editing our weekly bulletin (we take turns), and we'd welcome one or two new people to help out with this. Is this something you'd enjoy doing? Our bulletin tells people what's on, helps to raise awareness about the many sustainability-related activities in and around Cambridge, and ultimately helps to build a new culture of sustainability and sustainable lifestyles. Many people tell us how much they appreciate, so we'd really like to keep it going. If you have ideas of things you'd like to add/change, we're also very open to them - we want it to respond to the needs and interest of the audience! Get in touch if you'd like to be part of the bulletin-writing team! (Posted 16 June 2015)

Romsey Community Garden needs a new coordinator

Romsey Community Garden is now 3 years old and has been doing very well with a core group of local people who come along regularly and a couple of "mystery" gardeners who do a lot of the hard work for us! Mags left Cambridge a while back and Anna, the current coordinator, would like to take a break, so a new coordinator would be very welcome. People really love the garden and we'd like to make sure that it continues to flourish, so please get in touch if you'd like to do this! (Posted 15 June 2015)

Liaison rep with other environment/sustainability groups in the city

Cambridge Hub have recently organised some meetings to bring together groups within the city working on sustainability-related issues. They'd like to form a group including one representative from each of the groups. Evidently it's a good idea for us to be aware of what each other are up to and to work together where we can. This role would involved attending their meetings and our coordination meetings (so probably 2 meetings per month in the evenings, Transition coordination meetings are always the 3rd Monday of the month). There would also be the option of helping to organise get-togethers between the groups. There is a meeting this Thursday organised by this group - come along to get an idea of what this role might involve! Get in touch for more info. (Posted 21 Jan 2015)

For Transition groups - if you'd like to advertise a role on here, please get in touch, either via e-mail, via this link or at a TC hub meeting.
