sPark It across the Liverpool City Region

Transition Liverpool CIC (Community Interest Company) is part of the Transition Network and strives to bring communities within the Liverpool City Region (LCR) together through green projects. Having recently become a CIC our priority is to help support diverse communities across the LCR to make the necessary changes within their personal and civic lives to tackle the multiple problems of climate breakdown. To do this we will be providing several activities such as: free public educational talks, film shows, workshops and demonstrations on ways to create our own local and family based resources, climate cafes and finally mapping green enterprises within the Mersey region to support the development of an alternative local economy.
One of the projects that Transition Liverpool supports is sPark It. The sPark It team have now raised £10,649 on Spacehive with the support of 94 backers. The original event was supposed to take place on a weekend in June – a big street festival where everyone would be welcome to join us in supporting some of Liverpool’s greatest community organisations.
Unfortunately with the way the world is right now the team decided that, in the interest of everyone’s safety, we would no longer be planning a street festival.
However, the good news is we have come up with a plan! We will still support these organisations with pop-up parklets but instead of them being just on Hope street they will be across the LCR and on a staggered time scale. We hope with all your support this will be possible and it will still be as amazing as we first planned.
