On Saturday 28th January Foothills Transition will host an innovative Open Space event designed to facilitate creative local action to address the challenges of energy supply, cost, and use in the future.
This event will follow the Footcandle screening of the movie ‘Gasland’ at the Carolina Theater on Thursday which examines the negative effects of natural gas drilling. We have entered a period of ever-declining oil and gas supplies over the long term along with increasing prices. How does this impact us? Can we transform how we heat and cool our homes, how we transport ourselves, and the products we use every day? Can we relocalize our food supply to make it less dependent upon fossil fuels? All this takes planning. How will we plan for a future beyond the age of cheap energy?
Open Space is an extraordinary and powerful tool that is used successfully around the world to build solutions to seemingly intractable problems. The evening will be divided into two sessions, starting at 7pm with a brief introduction to Transition and 7.20pm to begin the discussion rotation. Everyone is welcome to participate in this unique event, so come along and be part of the solution.
