To live sustainably and become more self-sufficient we may need to invent new ways of living, without, or while we wait for, our governments to do it. Shaun Chamberlin from Transition Town Kingston says that large scale problems don’t require large scale solutions, rather they require small scale solutions within a large scale framework.

In this group we explore how people in Armenia, Egypt and Georgia are making an effort to support healthy food production and survival of small producers, better use of agricultural land etc… How much do you know about how you and the community you live in gets food and energy?

Tell us about the fabulous initiatives in your town/city! Are there projects for urban farming, sustainable energy sources or projects to decrease dependence on fossil fuel based transport?
