The Power of Community
The Power of Community

Story: Susannah Diamond

Over 30 people came to the Vestry Hall on October 14th to participate in Transition Sheffield's 3×3 Film Festival.

The Transition Towns movement aims to build local community resilience in the face of global climate change and declining energy reserves.

Three film nights took place in the Vestry Hall, highlighting the issues of pollution and resource depletion, and the films were followed by discussions about a better life in Burngreave beyond oil. A range of reactions were evident, for example:

“I'm shocked – I didn't realise how quickly we're using the oil”;

“I've been thinking of growing vegetables; I feel motivated now to make a start”;

“I hope the community spirit in Burngreave will strengthen as we address the challenges together”.
