Transition Town Tooting

"And what was it all for? Bringing different parts of Tooting together, illustrating how supposed rubbish can be re-used to make things of beauty and that high streets don't always have to be highways: they can be community spaces too. By doing something out of the ordinary the Lido crew have helped show that people and places can change, that there are other ways of living in a low carbon future."
  Sue Rentoul, South London Swimming Club


Transition Town Tooting ‘unleashed’ its 20 year vision for a sustainable future a week later looking at energy use, education, well- being, arts, food growing, transport, health and land-use following a pattern of work engaged in by transition towns around the world. Local communities (and artists!) were recognised as having a key role to play in the shaping of our world.

The carnival featured on London ITN 6‘oclock news, was covered on Transition Culture's blog and had excellent coverage in the local paper, quoting local MP Sadiq Khan saying the carnival had "brought together our schools, community groups, business and wider community in an awe inspiring way".

The Trashcatchers Carnival lives on! A wealth of arts projects has now bubbled to the surface in Tooting. A rubicon was crossed on July 4th. Things are possible in Tooting!
