January to March 2021 These talks are now available on our youtube channel here. Speakers include Rob Hopkins, Tony Juniper and Nicola Terry, with topics ranging from art and imagination to energy, nature and water. See all the talks here.
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.
All of our events will follow the current local coronavirus regulations, and most of of our events are currently online. More

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.

Transition Cambridge's water project, "Precious water" was in this year's Earth Optimism event, which formed part of the Cambridge Festival. The page is still available and includes several videos and lots of information, so do take a look! The videos describe and explore the effects of our consumption on the environment and what we can do about it. You will hear from Cllr Katie Thornburrow, from Cambridge City Council, and Ruth Hawkesley from the Wildlife Trust. You can also experiment with an animated aquifer and use our water calculator to see where the water goes in your home. More...

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.
Are you a budding photographer, journalist or event coordinator? Have a few hours to help out and meet great people like you? We always have opportunities for you to get involved over here on our volunteering page.
