The TTT Christmas Party

Thought you might like to see this short film of the TTT Christmas party, which shows the moment when we were able to tell everyone about the success of our Low Carbon Communities Challenge application.

Comments are now closed on this site, please visit Rob Hopkins' blog at Transition Network to read new posts and take part in discussions.

Congratulations on your Low Carbon Community funding. There are lots of us in Australia watching with interest.

half a million £ for Totnes??? wow. outstanding.

Now- watch out. When they finally give you money, and say “ok, show us” – you have to really make it work. That’s a lot of work.


And- money tends to make people cranky -“you want to spend OUR money on WHAT?? You’re totally wrong; that would be a waste of all OUR efforts- we obviously should be spending on THIS,,,”

Kind of inevitable- but if everybody is aware of the hazard ahead of time, it can help.
