Sustainable Cities Workshop, 1:30-4pm, Sheffield Cathedral, Domino Hall, S1 1HA, Free Entry (donations welcome)
An evening with Rob Hopkins, 7-9 pm Quaker Meeting House, Sheffield S1 2EW, £5/£3
In the afternoon workshop we will explore aspects of sustainability which are increasingly important for cities like Sheffield. We expect to bring together a wide range of people into a space where it is possible to ask both naïve and informed questions about the future sustainability and resilience of Sheffield. The workshop will include small group discussions and some simple activities to enable everyone to demonstrate their opinions.
At the evening event, Rob Hopkins will use examples from "The Power of Just Doing Stuff", the latest Transition Book, to describe the innovative and positive ways that Transition Initiatives are harnessing grassroots community action to create a new and more sustainable reality.
In between the afternoon and evening, there's a unique opportunity to celebrate the progress on sustainability that's been made so far in Sheffield. We're heading to the Town Hall steps to meet with Councillor Jack Scott, Sheffield's Cabinet Member for Environment, Recycling & Streetscene at 4:30pm. We'll have a solar powered soundsystem on hand, and we're, inviting all supporters of sustainability to come on down to join us with bicycles, beetroots, banners, to celebrate the power of just doing stuff!.
