Transition Cambridge - Newcomers' Meeting

Monday 7th November

New to the Transition movement? Not sure where to start? Come along to our Newcomers' Meeting, where you can meet the people behind our groups and projects and hear first hand what we get up to.

Borrow a Vegetable Garden

Our Garden Share scheme matches would-be growers with under-used gardens. One of these partnerships in the CB4 Arbury area - a well-tended veggie plot - is in need of a new gardener. If you're interested in taking this over in 2017, please contact Jacky to discuss.

12th - 13th November, Pivotal Takeover

Cambridge Museum of Technology

A homemade festival celebrating the anniversary of the Paris Climate deal. Featuring films, conversations, storytelling, music, nature, food and drink, the Pivotal Takeover promises to be inspirational, provocative and memorable. More details to come soon: watch this space

We need help crowdfunding to make sure this as big a success as we want it to be! We're just a few supporters short of reaching our target, so donate here if you want to help make this happen

Join the Energy Group!

One of the largest sources of greenhouse emissions is the way we get out energy. Through actions like reducing energy consumption, purchasing more efficient equipment and installing renewable energy infrastructure, we can move towards a low carbon future.

The energy group is your place to find tips to save energy, get involved in awareness-raising across the area or help set-up renewable energy co-ops. Look out for upcoming events in the newsletter for your chance to get involved.

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.

However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.

We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!
