Who we are

Faced with uncertain energy prices and climate change, our response is to build a stronger, more versatile community a community with the capacity to adapt to whatever happens and where we can be happy and healthy.

Transition Cambridge joins the hundreds of Transition towns across the UK, and the thousands of them around the world in an effort to make more resilient and sustainable communities. To see how it all started, have a look at the Transition Guide.

In just under 1 month the first Films for our Future Festival will be underway across Cambridge and the villages. We have an almost daily selection of films and conversation opportunities to help everyone find the next step on our personal and collective journeys towards a sustainable, low carbon society. We'd love to hear from anyone who's inspired to help with some of the many and varied background jobs that will make this season a success: from sound and techie enthusiasts, social media users, vloggers and bloggers, stewards and bucket rattlers! Please email Jacky if you'd like to play a part in this exciting initiative! More...

Meet the Energy Group

An important part of our response to climate change is to contribute as little as possible to it, and a large part of that is weaning ourselves off fossil fuels. The energy group aims to do whatever we can to save energy and to generate renewable energy to replace fossil fuels .

Over the years we have distilled a lot of online advice about this which you can use and learn from. There tips on things you can do at home, insulation, renewable energy like heat pumps and wood stoves and, since climate change is going to bring us warmer weather, on how to keep cool. Look at our homepage for details of the next meeting or get in touch.

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, 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!
