A NEW group which hopes to make Saffron Walden less dependent on fossil fuels has organised a series of events to kick start the debate.
Walden in Transition wants to equip the community with the resources to survive in a world where supply of oil cannot meet demand.
Founder of solar energy company Solarcentury, Jeremy Leggett, will start the discussion with a talk at Saffron Walden Town Hall at 8pm on Tuesday March 24. Tickets cost �3 from the Tourist Information Centre, currently based at the town hall.
Dr Stephen Willoughby from Walden in Transition said: "The triple crunch of oil depletion, climate change and the global recession presents us with huge opportunities as well as challenges.

Future guest speakers include the Green Party's Dr Rupert Read (April 15), David Strahan from the Oil Depletion Analysis Centre (April 23) and Dr Joe Smith from the Open University (May 5).
