We're grassroots Heathrow residents proving that communities less dependent on oil can be more resilient, stronger and happier. We take direct action on climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy by transitioning to a post-oil, community-led future for the Heathrow villages.

Here’s another date for your diary. On Thursday 7th June, as the next installment of Grow Heathrow’s first Thursday of the month off-grid film club, we will be showing the Transition Network’s brand new film In Transition 2.0 

Filmmaker Emma Goude will be making the journey up here and will be taking questions after the film. We are inviting every Transition Town group across London and from the Thames Valley region to come and watch it with us so it should be a packed greenhouse.

Watch the trailer here and don’t miss out on this free film screening, starting at 8.30pm. Crash space is available if requested.

In Transition 2.0 is the new film from Transition Network, capturing inspiring stories of Transition initiatives around the world, responding to uncertain times with creativity, solutions and ‘engaged optimism’.

Campaigners from smkcampaigners on Vimeo.

This brings back some warm memories. This five minute film, produced by the Media Trust for UK-based charity the Sheila McKechnie Foundation (SMK), aims to inspire people to get involved in campaigning.

Every day, ordinary people campaign to right wrongs. Anyone can campaign.

A fine example of people Power against economic polluting giants. The video includes old footage of Plane Stupid, NOTRAG, HACAN, Transition Heathrow and all who organised the ceilidh (2nd half of the video).

SMK is the only registered charity in the UK dedicated to connecting, informing and supporting campaigners. For more information visit smk.org.uk.
