About us.....

Abingdon Carbon Cutters is a Community Action Group formed to help reduce the carbon footprint of Abingdon in response to climate change, and to promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town as fossil fuel stocks decline. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at St Ethelwold's House, which is here.

At some meetings, we have guest speakers to present various topics, and at others we discuss our own personal actions to address climate change. The group has a focus on encouragement, both of one another, and of the town community.

Age of Stupid.

"Age of Stupid", the new award winning British Documentary starring the Oscar Nominated Pete Postlethwaite opens in cinemas across the UK for one week commencing 20th March 2009.
The film will premiere in London on 15th March
This is a unique opportunity for local transition, low carbon, sustainable community groups to showcase what is happening in their area.

Why not consider organising a themed event to coincide with the screenings? Hold a quiz night, panel discussion, a ladies night, student night - whatever you can think of to make sure that all cinema goers leave the Chapter cinema knowing that there are things they can do as an individual and in their community to reduce carbon emissions and learn to live a fulfilling and rewarding low carbon life. If you would be interested in holding an event or would consider co-ordinating events during the screening weeks, please let me know. Together with Spanner films and the cinemas we are doing our best to ensure that every venue opens their doors to local community groups and uses the cinema space and building to accommodate local groups during the run of Age of Stupid. We are also looking for people who would be willing to speak at community events in all parts of the UK about their personal actions to reduce carbon emissions. at screenings of Age of Stupid, particularly London , Belfast , North East England , South East and Lancs.

Stop Climate Chaos, Women's Environment Network and People and Planet are all keen to get involved in events at all cinemas.

If you haven't heard of Age of Stupid take a look at www.ageofstupid.net If you have seen the film (at Climate Camp, Transition Towns Conference or at one of the preview screenings), take your friends, families, neighbours and help us make this the most successful British Documentary of 2009.

If you would be interested in co-ordinating cinema events in your area or spekaing after a screening please get in touch as soon as possible.
