The general findings included;
70% of respondents want to make a difference in our community.
Two thirds of respondents valued meeting like-minded people via Transition Chepstow.
Respondents were typically very concerned about Climate Change, Peak Oil/Energy Prices and the Economic Crisis.
A significant number of repsondents were interested in increasing their food growing and ‘eco-diy’ skills.
All our regular activities (e.g. Apple Day, Give It Away – Take It Away) showed a good or very good level of support from respondents.
Weekday evenings and Weekend afternoons seem the best for members who want to be involved.
Almost all respondents use the email newsletter and event reminder emails for staying in touch. 85% of respondents use the website to stay in touch.
