A deluge of upcoming events - and how to find out about them

With the year underway Transition Town events and other sustainability events are now appearing thick and fast, including Transition Town gatherings and information evenings, community grant information events, permaculture and sustainable living workshops and the list goes on.

Generally there are far to many events occurring to promote all of them on the blog, however a large number are listed on the Transition Town ning website (if you are new to this site, you need to create a login, which is easy, and then you can view the events calendar and list events too). Furthermore Sustainable Jamboree does a good job of listing Brisbane wide events on their website as well as in their newsletters.

As a bit of a taster for whats on, here are some of the upcoming events

Transition Brisbane gathering and screening of the "In Transition" movie
Sun 17th Jan, 10.15am
Brisbane City Square library (opposite the casino) in the community meeting room ground floor
After the movie there will be updates from various Transition groups, a Q/A and general open forum discussion etc.
The meeting room has a fridge, microwave, cutlery etc so bring some lunch if you want.
