Time for Action – Midsummer meeting 2022

An AGM with a difference: time to refocus ourselves, to begin to reimagine how Transition Tavistock can respond even more effectively and creatively to the environmental and climate emergencies. Help us create this new future by bringing your head (knowledge), heart (passion) and hands (plans). 21st June, 7pm at Tavistock United Reformed Church. Free, and open to all, but if you are not already a member, why not join up on the night (subscription £5 a year) to show your support?

AGM 2021

AGM and COP26

Our Annual General Meeting, with a difference, will take place on the 11th September 2-4pm in the Lower Deck, United Reform Church, Russell St. As part of the Great Big Green Week events (18th – 26th) and COP26 we will be making moths.

As a unifying theme for Great Big Green Week in the Tamar Valley and West Devon, Art & Energy Collective, supported by Tamar Energy Community, invite groups to join in their inspiring Moths to a Flame project. This involves hosting moth-making events or mini-installations where people can hang moths they’ve made (from milk bottles – instructions here), before or during the week. The installations will be collected in plenty of time to be taken to Glasgow for a mass participation artwork of 20,000 moths, with messages to the COP26 climate summit, recorded by people making the moths.

All you need are, plastic milk bottles, scissors, and a marker pen..

Please come and join us to catch up and make moths.

We’re talking about the Devon Carbon Plan

The Devon Climate Emergency partnership has come up with lots of ideas – use their survey (by15th Feb) to show which you support.

Our Zoom event on 27th January covered an introduction – as we see it – to how the plan and consultation work, and some of the themes it covers. More detail on our Climate Matters page. Since then a poster summarising the plan in 8 points has been released.

Bring along seeds you have to swop … and have a-grow at something different in 2018.

No seeds to bring? Come along anyway, pick up some seeds, have a-grow, and bring your own seeds back next year!

We look forward to ‘seeding’ with you.
