“Climate change has happened because of human behaviour therefore it’s only natural it should be us, human beings, who address these issues. it may not be too late if we take decisive actions today”

Ban Ki-moon

Since 2009 Transition Darebin has been active in pursuing it’s vision of…

“a relocalised and resilient Darebin that is livable for current and future generations”

Since that time many of you have been active in developing, running or simply attending the hundreds of projects, initiatives and events that we have run.

But with the impacts of resource depletion, limits to growth and climate change moving from a prediction to a reality, it’s timely that we ‘check in’ about how we take Transition Darebin forward to in to the future.

We want to take this opportunity to hear what moves, concerns or fires you up to get in and do something about building a more sustainable Darebin, not only for the now… but also for the future generations to come. With this in mind we would like to invite and encourage you to attend a really important event.

 2015 Future Directions Gathering and AGM

This will be an opportunity to review what we’ve achieved, and start the conversation about what and who will take Darebin towards a localized and resilient future

When: Friday 20th November @ Jika Jika Community Centre (Cnr Union Street and Plant Street, Northcote)

Time: 7-9:30

Whether you are or have been an active member, or have just been an observer, this is a great chance for us to start the conversation about groups, people, projects and causes that will add to and continue to build Transition Darebin in the future, as well as an opportunity to meet, mingle and sample our very own Transition Darebin brew provided by the Merri Mashers Brewing Club.

Transition Darebin is a non-hierarchical organisation and whilst there will be short election for ‘nominal’ office bearers to complete the requirements of incorporation roles will be determined at a future meeting.

Big Questions for the Night

What is Transition Darebin and Why?

Where have we been in 2014/2015?

Where are we going in 2016 and beyond?

What would… or could make the difference? What projects or ideas would truly move us towards a re-localized and sustainable future in Darebin?

What are we missing, what should we continue with and how do we best organise ourselves to do the most without overloading busy people?
