Special Transition Town Hastings Events

Categories Sustainability
The SOS team have been very busy putting together a nine-day programme of events for Sustainability on Sea (SOS) 2019. 
We are now well over 60 events include craft workshops, storytelling, films, activism, beach cleans, guided walks, bike rides, woodland skills, gardening, apple pressing, energy advice, permaculture, food sharing and much more!

SOS coincides with the Global Climate Strike. From September 20-27 millions will walk out of workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers demanding an end to the age of fossil fuels. Aside from the key strike event on September 20th, you might want to take the whole week off and join some SOS events too!

Below is a selection of events organised by Transition Town Hastings and the SOS team.
