The Transition Towns movement has just launched a new film – and guess what?! Sharing Abundance has teamed up with Transition Coburg and the Moreland Energy Foundation to hold the first ever screening of this film in Australia!!!

The film will be shown on Sunday, 20th May, in the Coburg library – meeting there at 3.45pm for a 4pm start. Hope to see you there, and please invite a friend or a neighbour. Everyone’s welcome! 

It would also be great to hang around afterwards to have a cup of tea and a chat.
