A good society makes it possible for everyone to lead a meaningful and fulfilling life. Yet, our society is currently focused solely on profit, and people are forced to chase money rather than happiness. The laws and policies that we make lay down tracks that determine where the economy takes people. Right now, our economy is built around profit rather than being built to get people to their true needs.

We at Transition Kentish Town believe it’s possible to meet our needs within the planet’s finite resources but it requires us to step outside what we know and engage in dialogue with each other.  Join the conversation where our time together will be spent in small groups of 4 or 5 people on this question:

How can we, individually and collectively co-create a future that we want for our local community?

As local residents we know that we face difficult challenges, yet for those of us who are ready to rebel, to question and to think again, these are exciting times.

We are not starting from scratch.  Our libraries, parks and public services are examples of this future.  Locally, we have created Camden Air Action, Veg box, Power Up North London and the Listening Space as examples of the future we want to see.  We want to build on this, based on what matters locally.

“Anyone who believes in indefinite growth in anything physical, on a physically finite planet, is either mad or an economist.” – Kenneth E. Boulding
