Edinburgh Uni Green drinks is next Thursday, 3rd March, in Teviot. We have tonnes of stuff to chat about and many a reason to get excited with Spring just around the corner. Come along and share what you are up to, catch up with old friends and meet more!
Join us from 7.30 Teviot’s Library Bar (downstairs Writing Room).
This month’s Green Drinks coincides with the Transition Community Gathering (aka steering group) which is happening from 6pm to 7.30pm in the Balcony Room in Teviot, the perfect place to catch up with TEU projects, the funding bid and have your say. It’s also EUSA election night in Teviot so we can have a few drinks then head upstairs for the exciting results!
See you there

Fresh Air Student Radio, Transition Edinburgh University and DIY Edinburgh with the bicycle powered generators, are proud to present….
A bicycle powered, remotely broadcast, radio show!
Jamie Wood and the Music Team will be streaming their Breath of Fresh Air music radio show this Friday 25th Feb between 2 – 3.30pm as normal…only this time it will be live powered by cyclists! No cyclists, no energy to power the equipment, no radio show. So come join in make it happen with us! A pretty unique event come to think of it…can’t really think where this has been done before?! (if you know, let us know!) Or, tune in online and turn it up!
There may be quizzes, games, silly hats for those cycling, live bands and definitely some pumping tunes…General audience participation, discussion on an environmental/social theme,finding out how the generators work, interesting projects happening at Uni and around and perhaps some nonsense…..most probably some nonsense : )
Short notice but hey, we like to surprise…
See you there! (no lycra required)

Here’s a fun graph – price of oil compared to the percentage of energy generated from renewable sources. The good news is that the UK has more than doubled it’s renewable energy capacity since 1975. The bad news is that oil has got 10x more expensive in that time!

Introduction to Permaculture with Lusi Alderslowe

‘What is permaculture??’
The word ‘permaculture’ comes from ‘permanent agriculture’ with ‘permanent culture.’ It combines an ethical framework, with an understandings of how nature works, with a design approach. This combination is then used to support the creation of sustainable, agriculturally productive, non-polluting and healthy settlements.
