Transition Sheffield Radio, there is a plan to have a monthly one hour radio show on Sheffield Live!, if you are interested in getting involved please join the radio email list.


Agenda for next meeting

  1. What should we call our programme?
  2. When do we want the first programme to be? January 2010? Sooner?
  3. Ideas for things the programme should include:
    • What should the programme look like? I think it should centre on one main interview each month. It would be good to have a live interview but I doubt any of us feels confident enough yet. How do we overcome that? It would be good if someone with loads of experience could mentor us on that... We want our programme to have a buzz, content with wow factor rather than being stuff that people won't tune in for. Possible slots include:
    • Live or recorded interviews (Transitions members who've been to events and heard great speakers should also be encouraged to let us know about them for potential interviews).
    • Recording of speakers at events
    • Interactive element - eg asking people to write/email their 'green tips' (Transitions members who don't want to get involved in other ways could get involved in this way as it involves zero commitment). This could include book reviews/recommendations, where to get free stuff etc.
    • News round-up
    • Events/what's happening locally and nationally
  4. Quality control
    • Who is going to decide what goes in and what doesn't?
    • Who does what?
    • How to get more people involved?
    • Would be good to have two or three people with time on their hands but don't think we need a cast of thousands.
    • Clare, have you got the email address of the woman who does the Sharrow newsletter? She might be willing to record an events section - or at least provide us with the raw material. Does she only list events in Sharrow and immediate surrounds? Maybe you could also ask the new people who came to your film if they want to get involved?
    • Sangita - have we now got the email address of Steve at Sheffield Live!? I'm sure he has ideas he'd like to contribute and if he can come to the next meeting that would be great.
    • Notices and posters (Coop, Blue Moon, health food shops etc.)
    • Date for session with Sangita to find out how to do record telephone interviews in Sheffield Live studio

Things to do

  1. 21 Oct - Chris to record Pettifor/Giddens speeches
  2. Nov - Clare and Chris to record stuff from the Transitions North conference
  3. Interview with Patrick Harding. Susan is happy to set this up for next month once she knows how to do studio telephone interview. Would prefer a face to face but haven't got the technology, though guess I could borrow equipment from Sheffield Live!?
  4. Interview re Abundance - any volunteers?
  5. Interview with Sheffield Renewables - Chris would like to do this
  6. Climate teach-ins at university. Could do with full list.
