Grey Lynn 2030 is part of the international, grassroots Transition Towns movement. The goal of Transition Towns is to bring people together to explore how we – as communities – can respond to the challenges and opportunities of climate change and peak oil. Transition Towns works on the belief that communities have within themselves the innovation and ingenuity to create positive solutions to the converging crises of our time.
Grey Lynn 2030 is a local response to the ideas of the Transition initiative. Grey Lynn 2030 is participatory community organisation promoting and engaging in building neighbourhood spirit and cooperation while working towards a vision a self –reliant, positive, resilient, vibrant, connected and sustainable community.
We currently have over 2,000 email supporters on our contact list and almost 5,000 people on our Facebook page.
All our activities are undertaken on a voluntary basis with some local government funding for particular projects. We have been able to support the focus groups with income from koha collected at meetings and occasional movie nights. The Grey Lynn 2030 Car Boot Market covers the cost of our administration and publicising of our events.
