4 New PEDAL Project workers!

PEDAL -> Portobello Transition Town has recruited 4 workers to run a new project aiming to reduce the collective carbon footprint of Portobello and to develop local resources to meet the needs of our community.

Project Manager:
We have employed an experienced manager to manage our projects and finances, fund raise, communicate our vision, and develop our Transition response to Climate Change and Peak Oil.

Two Food Workers:
One Energy Worker:

We have employed 3 development workers: two specialising in food and one in energy. In developing their particular area of work, they will be organising a range of events, producing publicity materials and – we hope – working with you to galvanise a high level of community involvement, meeting the challenges of Climate Change and Peak Oil through facilitating meaningful social change.

These posts currently run until the end of March 2011.

    No problem.

    I fully support the work of the organisaton and wish you lot all the best.

    I was going to become a member ages ago but I refuse to use cheques! Greener Leith I see operate an online payment method similar to Paypal which offers a very quick and simple way to pay ones membership fee.

    Keep up the good work !

  3. Agree that’s something we should do Michael, and I’ll try to get it done as soon as possible, for both Board members and staff. At the moment things are pretty busy what with setting up the office, systems and projects. Please bear with us.

    It would be great to have some kind of profile up here of each of the project staff.

    There might even be some merit in having someone information on the site about who runs the organisation, brief profiles/listing of the board perhaps?
