Transition Leicester Offers a Positive Alternative to ‘Eco-Towns’
I guess this links back to the recent discussions around whether Transition projects should campaign against stuff or now, but I have been very impressed with the work that Transition Leicester have been doing recently. Faced with a proposal to build one of the government’s controversial ‘Eco-Towns’ on the edge of the city, rather than joining the uproar of protests, Transition Leicester responded with an alternative, a mixture of less housing and more food production. You can read their excellent report here, and see a piece from the local TV news below.

Inspiring stuff. When I read this it really gives me hope for the future of mankind. I just hope their proposals get accepted.
