AN evening of discussing how to tackle today's environmental challenges has been organised by two groups within Vision Group for Sidmouth.
Sustainable Sidmouth and the Sid Valley Energy Action Group will show a film, Energy Crossroads at All Saint's Church Hall, at 7.30pm on Thursday, October 23.
Nicola Beglin from the Low Carbon Exeter Group will speak and there will be a chance to hear from neighbouring transition towns.
A spokesman for the group said: "As our fuel bills continue to rise and our once abundant oil resources begin to dwindle, more and more of us are waking up to the problem of how to meet our energy needs in the 21st century.
"It isn't all doom and gloom, the transition town movement is about making positive choices about what kind of community and world we want to live in.
"Together we can make Sidmouth a greener and more sustainable place.
Sidmouth has recently been granted transition town status in recognition of attempts by local campaigners to confront the problems of global warming and oil supply.
It joins a growing number of East Devon towns, including Seaton, Exmouth and Ottery St Mary.
Admission to the event is free.
