Resilience Webs for Norwich, Durham and York

Cambridge Resilience Web has expanded, and the Resilience Web platform is now available for everyone to use to create a web for their place (city/town/village/area etc). Just this weekend the Norwich Resilience Web went live, and there are already webs for Durham and York too. We'd love to support the creation of webs for Ely, Saffron Waldon, St Ives and other nearby places - if you live in these places and would like to help, please get in touch! Email Anna here. And if you haven't already had a look round the Cambridge Resilience Web, do take a look! More...

Transition Together consultation in support of future funding

Transition Together (the UK Transition network of groups) need our input to help secure future resources for the Transition movement in the UK: "With our current funding coming to an end in March 2025, we are working hard to demonstrate how Transition groups are having a positive impact on their communities and to tell a powerful collective story of how our movement - with the right resources - can continue to help communities solve problems, lead change and make things better in real, tangible ways. Hearing from Transition groups was vital to secure funding from the National Lottery Community Fund four years ago and has guided our work throughout. Now we need to hear from you again to make a strong bid for continuing and building on the work we've started. Here's how you can help: take our survey (both individuals and groups can feed back); and/or join our Movement Consultation Events on 22 May and 12 June (anyone involved in Transition is welcome to take part). We know everyone is busy and pressed - and really appreciate you taking the time to contribute. We also know that together, we are doing great things - and that we have only just begun, and if we can secure the right support, together we can do so much more." We (Transition Cambridge) have received several small and medium grants through Transition Together over the last few years, so please do fill in their survey/attend their event if you are able. Thanks! More...

Adding locations into the Resilience Web? Tell us your ideas

The Resilience We is a directory that lists groups and organisations that work on climate change, environmental issues, sustainability and social justice. There are currently two ways of viewing organisations, as a list and as a dynamic web with groups divided into categories (see here - you can toggle between the views at the top - the web view works best on larger screens). A few people have asked about mapping the geographical locations of groups on a map, and we are beginning to explore what this might look like and how people would like to use that kind of feature. We'd be really interested to hear your ideas - here is a brief survey. We'd be really grateful if you could take the time to fill it in (or just write us an email). As ever, we are also keen to create new Resilience Webs for new places, so if you'd like to create a web for your town/village/area/city, please do get in touch. Thanks! More...

Friday 22nd March - Saturday 8th Jun: Water usage survey opens

online 10:00
The water group is keen to find out what water saving measures we can promote to help alleviate the problem of water shortage. This last winter has been wet but droughts are becoming frequent. Summer 2019 was particularly bad. Hence a survey: what are we already doing and can we encourage others to do it too? Please fill in the survey - and you can enter a prize draw for £30 shopping vouchers. Tell your friends and family - we all use water, not just in Cambridge.

Friday 24th May: Energy Group - Shared Solar and Micro-grids

Marmalade Lane Common House and online 20:00-21:30 add to google calendar
The topic for May is Shared Solar and Micro-grids. We know that it's difficult to use all your own solar energy, especially without batteries. Can you use more by sharing with your neighbours? Or if you don't have your own roof space, can you build a shared system with your neighbours? Is it a good idea, and can it be done "fairly"? We'll look at the technology, costs and benefits. And other ways to get renewable energy without your own roof space, such as Ripple Energy. Chris W will lead and we will meet at the Marmalade Land Community and also online. Please ask Nicola for the zoom link.
