Updating our objectives

Thanks to the good number of people who came and contributed to a great and positive discussion  on 2 October, we have the following updated expression of our objectives:

To build resilience and sustainability into our local community by:

a)       creating, supporting and encouraging local solutions to the global problems of peak oil, climate change and economic crisis;

b)       raising awareness of the issues associated with the challenges of peak oil, climate change and economic crisis and the consequent need to develop a low carbon, sustainable future through ethical, social, cultural, economic, environmental and community action;

c)       supporting and working with other TransitionTowns and similar community-led initiatives; and

d)       engaging with individuals and organisations, including statutory, voluntary and business where appropriate.

 
We’ll be making formal changes to our articles of association after the meeting on 17 October, so if anyone feels strongly that the above wording should be tweaked some more then you have some time to think about it and express yourself!
