The name of the event is 'Smarter than Yeast?' The paralell is draw between the exponatial growth of organisms and the exponatial growth of human activities, leading to a global collapse! Well, that's the economic growth model directly leading to climate change for you!
So, the event is to raise awareness of Transition Nottingham and to bring together some local groups and individuals with an interest in sustainability and to get some new people interested. Hopefully those that attend will go on to spread the word about Transitions...if we make it inspiring!
Transition Nottingham are supporting this event and organising or supporting other events involving different communities. It is hoped that a series of events will inspire people and get them thinking, talking and acting - who knows what solutions can then be found...
Speakers on peak oil, and the V3 folks on blade carving (for wind turbines), free shop, local groups promoting their projects, live music, poetry, storytelling, short films and visuals....
The venue was available throughout the day and evening. Talks and workshops were held during the day, with folks gathering together in early evening for presentations and films.
