ACTIVISM:

Transition Network

https://transitionnetwork.org/

Transition is a movement that has been growing since 2005.  It is about communities stepping up to address the big challenges they face by starting local.  By coming together, they are able to crowd-source solutions. They seek to nurture a caring culture, one focused on supporting each other, both as groups or as wider communities.

In practice, they are reclaiming the economy, sparking entrepreneurship, reimagining work, reskilling themselves and weaving webs of connection and support

REPAIR & REUSE

 The Hanover Centre, Southover Street, Brighton. operates a great Repair Cafe drop in on the last Saturday of the month. https://brightonrepaircafe.wordpress.com/

We believe it would great to run a similar monthly session at Bristol Community Cafe. We're looking for volunteers on Bristol Estate with skills they would like to share. For example repairing zips, darning, replacing elastic, hemming, repair a wooden chair with your woodwork/carpentry skills, have electrical skills, PAT testing.

Why volunteer your skills? it's an opportunity to meet residents on estate interested in reducing landfill, it can be a good way to promote your trade and network, help build the community on the estate.
