“Zero Carbon Britain” course
Reem Alkayyem, Katharina Bouchaar, and Johanna Carrie from Transition Edinburgh attended the 2017 “Zero Carbon Britain” course at the independent Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth, Wales.
The course introduced the changes needed in order to achieve a 100% renewable energy-driven Britain with current technologies. This mainly requires improvements in the buildings, land use, energy, and transport sectors.
Inspired by the course, Transition Edinburgh team is developing initiatives and projects to be launched next September.
Beanies for babies
Johanna Carrie represented Transition Edinburgh in supporting “Friends of the Earth” and anti fracking groups outside Parliament on Thursday May 25th. Some supportive MSPs came to talk to us. About 100 people signed petition postcards. The beanies for babies is linked to the protest, as tinies will be the most vulnerable if fracking chemicals contaminate drinking water. The baby hats will be donated to a Falkirk hospital.
