The Second Sundays 2021 

14th February was time love to the planet ! Our theme was “Our Climate Crisis.”
On February’s Second Sunday we linked to a Vimeo broadcast of the Hexham Debate, Climate Crisis: Young People’s Perspectives on Their Future.

We were in conversation with some climate activists and hosted a panel discussing the current situation and it’s relevance in Tynedale. We had a live, keynote address by Dr Alan Whitehead, shadow minister for Energy & Business and Minister for Labours Green Deal as well as excellent contributions from prominent regional and local people and a chance to question them about their work. Here are the Vimeo recordings of our two zoom meetings.

As well as the Second Sunday event, TT hosted a Hexham Debate on Sat 6th February where young people discussed their fears and ideas. This is available on the Hexham Debates Website on vimeo for you to watch again, or catch up with if you missed it. Here’s the link.

So keep warm and safe.

The TT team

Tynedale Transformed is about re-imagining a fairer and sustainable future and making it happen.

It’s about imagining radical change and planning how to make it happen. And it’s about doing it together. We want local, regional, national and international voices, tackling topics that affect us all here in Tynedale.

Tynedale Transformed is about pushing the boundaries of what political participation looks like. Strategy games, treasure hunts, reading groups, and theatre workshops, talks, events, walks, lectures…. anything is possible.  TT will be based on inclusivity and a shared wish to examine the issues facing our communities and our world, encouraging a politics based on creativity, open mindedness and comradeship. We want to transform the way we live together. We want to start the conversation.
Our aim is to draw on existing networks and connections, locally, regionally and nationally as well as providing a platform for new ideas new groups and individuals.
