My latest blog was written for the Transition Network ‘International’ series – an insight into national transition hubs. I detailed the work and achievements of the People’s Energy Charter. You can read it here.
Meanwhile I am contemplating where to next. At a recent event in Cloughjordan Eco Village about 40 people were exploring how to accelerate the local energy transition. While I had hoped to explore what to do in County Clare I ended up focusing on how we will ensure that ordinary citizens are at the national energy forum.
However I find myself swamped these days. I have so much cleaning, painting, furniture shifting, digging and more all backed up I will have to step away from the activism. This is where voluntary work stinks. If I was paid I could in turn pay someone to do what I can’t when my time is going into environmental work. It makes me angry though because industry can pay people to keep on top of policy and lobbying. Dilemma 😦
