What we're about

What is Transition? The Transition movement is a community led initiative in a positive response to the increasing pressures of climate change on our lives. It aims to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels through: · Greater connection with our neighbours building resilient local communities · Localised economy - buying local goods and services from local people · Greater self sufficiency - from growing your own food to generating your own electricity · Reducing the cost and environment impact of fuel bills and transport · Reducing our waste – through recycling and up-cycling · Re-using and sharing products and skills The focus is on positive small steps we can take that will make our local communities stronger and less dependent on external supplies of goods and services brought in by fossil fuels

Heading For Extinction Talk and what to do about it!

The planet is in ecological crisis: we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an emergency. In this public talk, speakers from Extinction Rebellion will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements. Everyone is welcome and there will be time to ask questions and discuss afterwards. Entry is free. This is a really good opportunity to meet those who are involved in XR locally, and to understand more about what the group gets up to (it's not just about blocking roads in London, honestly). It's also a great way to meet others who are also concerned about climate change, and who are ready to offering a bit of time and energy to accelerating positive changes.
