We’ve arrived! New Spring/Summer edition of Transition Free Press now published

TFP_2014-05_Cover_rgb-1Merry May Day everyone! Our first edition of the year is here at last! Thanks to all our contributors and a great core team we have taken our pilot blueprint  and given it a new twist for 2014.

Thanks also to over 80 distributors our colourful grassroots edition No 5 is now making its ways into shops, cafes, and community events across the UK from the Scilly Isles to the Shetlands (and even further abroad to Washington state). We bring you the latest news and reviews from the culture that’s shifting the way it looks at and engages in the world. All the elemental and essential stories that other papers don’t quite reach: on Earth, on the airwaves and in the swim.

W is for Water

13845808243_823628aac4_zThis issue we’re focusing on three big W’s: Waste (a Transition cafe that turns a town’s throw away food into delicious meals, an interview with Ugo Vallauri of the Restart Project, an update on The Rubbish Diet and  a new enterprise that makes bars from discarded fruit); Walking  (together in Deep Time, following the tracks of Patrick Leigh Fermor in search of hidden Europe and pollinating new ideas across the UK), and most of all Water, where we assess the impacts of last winter’s storms on the nation’s mindset. How the deluge not only has brought the reality of climate change nearer home, but also a deeper appreciation of the stuff of life around us, that includes surfing, lidos and foraging by the sea.

So do dip your toe or just jump into our new edition. Among our news and features pages you’ll find stories about rekindling democracy, alternative finance, community energy projects, open source tech,  neighbourhood reskilling, CSAs, sustainable time, mindfulness, Transition teas and more!

Transition Free Press is designed as a  paper you can hold in your hands. But if you don’t live near one of our distribution hubs, or are not one of our subscribers,  you can still read us on-line. Here’s the link:
