Here in Falmouth we are starting on the journey of designing for a happy and sustainable future post peak oil. We are following the model of Transition Towns already successfully being worked firstly in Kinsale and presently Totnes.
Meetings have already taken place at The Town Council Chambers and in the Town. We are planning a programme of fortnightly meetings, each to include a film and discussion, interspersed with attending events organised by other local groups.
