TTB has got some funding from the National Lottery Community Fund (via the Tranition Network) to improve its collected visions by working with a diverse group of local communities to update and add their own. The visions will be published (online initially) in time to contribute to the Lambeth Citizens Assembly on the Climate in May.
We are looking for a key individual to manage our Bounce Forward Project. We have £2,400 and estimate that you would need to work 1.5-2 days a week for approximately 3 months (start and end dates to be agreed on appointment).
This is part of a national Bounce Forward programme Transition Town Brixton has been awarded funding to run its own project, an outline of which you can read here.
Transition Town Brixton has a vision document. This, or elements of it, can be used as the basis for reaching out to Lambeth communities and asking them to imagine the future in 10 years time. You will reach out to communities and invite them to submit articles, blogs, pictures, photos etc which are then collated on-line. You will curate an on-line space where these 'imaginations' can be shared more widely. The imaginations will be shared at the time of the Lambeth Climate Assembly, which is expected to take place from May 2021.
Camden has done a similar visioning exercise which is here.
