Mapping Project

sPark It

Transition Towns is a global network whose aim is to help society to move away from the consumption of fossil fuels

We raise awareness of the positive impacts of a low carbon lifestyle, advocating for social and economic justice. We build links with other groups across the city in order to collaborate more effectively on key focus areas such as plans for local development and the protection of biodiversity and green space.

We provide advice and support for individuals who want to get involved in environmental/community work. We are currently developing a number of projects across the city — we’re creating a solidarity economy map of Liverpool City Region, planning an art takeover of our city streets, and are working with some friends on realising a Citizen’s Climate Assembly for Liverpool. There is always more work than there are people so if you want to DO something, come and speak to us!

With action, comes hope.

Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don’t they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.

If you need something to worship, then worship life — all life, every last crawling bit of it! We’re all in this beauty together!

– Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert

The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.

Nature teaches beasts to know their friends.

Like music and art, love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries.
