Film Night Sunday 13th November 7.30 pm: The Future of Hope – Our next film explores Iceland as a microcosm of the world’s financial ills, focusing on its attempts to build a sustainable, people-centric economy in the wake of the banking bubble and crash which brought the country to its knees. The film follows developments in organic farming, business, innovation, renewable energy and the
environment, and paints a positive vision for the future from which we can all learn. You can watch the trailer at http://www.futureofhope.co.uk
Film Night Sunday 11th December 7.30 pm: Taking Root. Plus Festive Drinks! Our last event of the year is a film about changing the world by planting trees. More information to follow later. http://www.ealingtransition.org.uk/

Energy Discussion: Saturday 27th August 2011, St Paul’s Recreation Ground, Albany Road, Brentford

An interesting discussion was had by the small number who came on Saturday.  With the next special event at Syon Lane on 25th (as opposed to the every Sunday open days) and the Steering group meeting on 20th, the next public debate event will possibly be in November.

Community gathering

Transition Brentford invites you to join a community gathering in Boston Manor Park, Brentford, next Saturday 16th July from 12-6.30 pm.  This will be an event for all ages.

Walk straight. Go past the enclosed baskteball court, past some football pitches on your right into the last field (nearest the canal).

Countdown to Zero

Just to let you know (or maybe remind you) that Watermans are showing the film Countdown to Zero. It is directed by Lucy Walker who made the excellent documentary Waste Land, and, rather more sombrely, is about the proliferation of nuclear driven power plants, weapons, non-degradable hazards, across the globe and the risks they pose. Hardly likely to be a popular offering, but it is good that Watermans shows films like this from time to time.

Screenings are:
Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th at 6.45
Wednesday 13th at 4.30
Thursday 14th at 4.15
