Countdown has begun ! We are proud to invite you to the Launch presentation of OurPlaceOurPlanet.org
Half an hour on Zoom: 7.30 to 8pm Tuesday 20th October 2020
OurPlaceOurPlanet.org is a website dedicated to the steps we can take towards a more sustainable future. It covers Energy, Waste, Food, Transport and Nature, featuring 5 First Steps per topic ( things we we can do today, such as order a veg box) and over 50 Next Steps (things that take a bit more organising, such as setting up a walking bus to school )
OurPlaceOurPlanet.org came out of a brainstorming network meeting in November 2019 , involving Transition Exmouth, representatives of over fifty local groups, schools, businesses and individuals as well as Town, District and County Councillors.
Exmouth Town Council has funded the build of the site , and the content has been drawn together by the Transition group. Exmouth Town Council have pledged to share the site from their homepage , and all their official communications, so the site will reach deep into the community, even touching people who don’t “identify” as “green” and may not normally search for such information.
Part of a sustainable future is of course a resilient local economy , so links to local businesses and groups who can help with each Step, as well as inter/national links, are part of the website. There are links to 100 local Exmouth groups and businesses already, and several hundred inter/national links.
The Local Links idea was too good to keep to ourselves, so the website has been built with the option to select any Place. The inter/national links are relevant to anyone, anywhere in the world . Local links to other Places can be added using a simple table. We are really excited to see who will be next to make the website their own: maybe your place, if you’re one of our non-Exmouth readers? The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change tells us that we have a decade to solve the Climate Emergency here on Planet Earth. Sharing OurPlaceOurPlanet.org from your website or in your email footer is an off-the peg action which reaches all your contacts. Help us spread the word !
