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.

Monday 26th March: Energy Group Meeting

Judith's place on Leys Road 20:00-22:00 add to google calendar
At this meeting the main topic will be waste handling and the waste hierarchy. Depending on what people want to talk about this is likely to cover alternatives to plastics packaging, incineration versus landfill (or other waste handling streams) and probably aspects of the circular economy. For more about the circular economy, see Nicola's notes from a previous discussion in 2016. There will also be a catch up on relevant news. All welcome! 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.

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!
