Is your town a Transition Town?
Transition Towns are those whose residents (or more precisely some of whose residents) have got together to produce an 'energy descent' plan to address the threats of both Peak Oil and Climate Change. Totnes was the first in the UK and they seem to be springing up all over. More details on the Transition Town website.
Totnes has a particular place in my heart as I spent a week at Schumacher College just outside the town learning and discussing sustainability with practitioners from around the world. It was such a dreamy, relaxing yet stimulating week that coming back to reality (or Totnes railway station) was a real shock. If you get a chance - go.
