Transition Free Press Issue 1

TransitionFreePress

Members of Ealing Transition have been busy this week distributing hard copies of the fantastic new quarterly broadsheet ‘Transition Free Press‘:

The Transition Free Press provides a clear voice reporting on the growing movement to build low carbon, regenerative, and resilient communities. With the Transition movement clearly in focus, Transition Free Press will also report on developments in new economics, relocalisation, food and energy security, social and environmental justice. Unlike the mainstream media, the Transition Free Press will deliver an alternative view of the world, one that isn’t controlled by corporations or wealthy individuals.

If you’ve not managed to find a print version, you can also read an electronic version of the paper 

If you would like to support the paper on an ongoing basis, you might want to consider backing the paper’s crowd-funding campaign, or subscribing. Details of how to participate can be found at: buzznk.org

Transition Free Press is a newspaper which has been developed to spread the news about all the good work being done by Transition groups throughout the UK and the rest of the world. Ealing Transition is pleased to announce that we are one of the 30+ groups who will be distributing the newspaper. Our subscription will be key to helping get this enormously positive initiative off the ground.

The 24-page paper will be published quarterly. TFP will provide a clear voice reporting on the growing movement to build low carbon, regenerative, and resilient communities. With the Transition movement clearly in focus, it will also report on developments in new economics, relocalisation, food and energy security, social and environmental justice. Unlike the mainstream media, the Transition Free Press will deliver an alternative view of the world, one that isn’t controlled by corporations or wealthy individuals.

TFP is produced by a not-for-profit collective and is supported, although not financed, by the Transition Network. While printing and postage costs have almost been covered, funding is needed to ensure the core team can be paid. TFP is therefore seeking crowdfunding via Buzzbnk by 14 February. If you would like to, you can help them with a donation or a subscription. Other Transition-related goodies are available depending on your level of participation.
