TTIP - how big polluters are hijacking the world's climate future

The Paris Climate Deal is a historic step, heralding an end to the era of fossil fuels.But, it’s not perfect. Many of us are asking why the deal failed to make real progress on protecting the rights of indigenous people or tackling deforestation, and why it took so many years to get a deal in the first place.There's one answer we keep coming back to. Governments are listening too much to powerful corporate lobbyists and not enough to ordinary citizens.Find out about the powerful opponents we…See More

Transition Derry
Making Links and Sharing Skills to Build Local Resilience for Powerdown

How do you see life in the North West after Peak Oil?
When oil production is on the decline and we no longer have access to the benefits of a cheap supply will we be able to cope with the end of the world as we know it?

Could we see the challenges as an opportunity to build on the networks which are already strong in our communities; to share skills; learn from our elders; create a new way of living which cares for people and the environment?
Transition Derry works locally as part of a worldwide initiative which is building community resilience to face the effects of Climate Change, Peak Oil and Economic Breakdown. To find out more go to

Transition Derry was started in October 2008 with the aim of developing community based networks to enable sustainable, local 'eating, heating and means of exchange'. 

I am delighted, at the start of 2016, to announce the installation of a masonry stove in my terraced house. I first saw these stoves (also known as thermal mass stoves and kachelofens) in 2011 in Sunseed Desert Community Spain www.sunseed.org and have been hankering after one since. Masonry stoves have been efficiently heating homes in the north of Europe, Russia and Scandinavia for centuries and the Romans used masonry technology to heat their public baths. The stoves use a small supply of wood, require only one or two firings a day, maximise the amount of heat retention, minimise emissions and provide a radiant heat which has been described as 'living with a piece of the sun'. I am looking forward to its first firing later this month and will share photos and information.
