Transition Cambridge Hub

Transition Cambridge is a community organisation, run entirely by volunteers. It consists of a number of groups co-ordinated by elected group representatives at Hub meetings. We are united by our concerns, our aims and our vision for the future:

  • We are concerned by climate change and rising energy prices due to fossil fuel supply issues and also the need to mitigate climate change
  • We aim to raise awareness of these issues and to develop resilience in the Cambridge community - lessening our dependence on fossil fuels and building local capacity. We aim to do this now - because we want to, not wait until we have to
  • Our vision is for a prosperous community which is people-oriented, diverse, supportive, versatile independent of fossil fuels.

See What is transition? for more about this and about the Transition Towns network as a whole. Get Involved is a good place to start if you would like to join in.

Hub meetings

The hub is a cross-group forum, with representatives of each sub group that meets once a month to co-ordinate activities and discuss issues that affect Transition Cambridge as a whole. Here are the minutes from our meetings.

If you are not an elected representative of a sub-group, you are welcome to come along to our meeting as a silent observer. Please contact one of the group representatives to arrange this.
