In Transition 2.0 - A Village Surrey Movie Night

“In Transition 2.0” is an inspirational immersion in the Transition movement, gathering stories from around the world of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

You’ll hear about communities printing their own money, growing food everywhere, localising their economies and setting up community power stations. It’s an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism.

In a world that is awash with gloom, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of growing vegetables in unexpected places.

Local Village Surrey blogger Silvia Di Blasio writes:

“Being “In Transition” and accepting the realities that affect our present and future both as citizens and as part of a wider community is not an easy task. We are trying to intentionally transition from an unhealthy and terribly unjust society to a more sustainable, resilient and caring one. We are talking about big challenges and we are trying to discover how to best support each other and other groups in our communities through difficult times.”
