Hi John,

Would you have time to have a bit of a chat over a pint/coffee or indeed a pint of coffee regarding Green New Deal regarding Northern Ireland? Also very interested in the transition town movement as I live in Holywood.

best regards,


p.s. love the discussion the other night at Queens

I just wanted to express thanks for the lecture last week. It was excellent, and certainly thought provoking on many levels and I feel will have helped to generate even more energy for the seventh generation team. I appreciate the time required to prepare and deliver the lecture, so thank you. I am only sorry that I was unable to remain until the end. I look forward to hearing you speak again.

Thank you SO MUCH for the talk last night. The lecture was EXCELLENT and very useful... inspiring and food for thought (and was fuel for "robust" debate on the walk home :))

Your spirit and knowledge and above all generosity is a gift to us all.

Thank you very much. The night was very important for me.
All the best,

Grand, 15th at 10.30 in Common Grounds it is then. Can you also contact Emma (whom I don't know) and Ada/Zand to invite them along as well? It would be useful to email some ideas before the meeting to focus our discussion. My mobile number is 07876597900 in case you need to contact me.
Peace, people and planet

Hello :) Yes, how does the 15th at 1030 to 1130 sound? Common Grounds? I could easily come to your office as well. Whatever suites you.

peace, Courtnae

Hi there Courtnae
Thanks for the email. Those dates do not suit me- how about Friday 15th - either 8.30-9.30 or 10.30-11.30? Best

Hi John!

Is there a good time in the fist two weeks of May that we could meet to brainstorm a bit more for the Capacity steering of 7th Gen? You Emma and I all work in the Queens vicinity and were thinking lunch in the area, say Bookfinders- or OUTSIDE? could be in order for the meeting.
13 or 14th of May - either of them work for you?

Blessings, Courtnae
