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.

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.
Our fortnightly e-bulletin has been published continuously since 2010 and is much appreciated as one of the best round-ups of sustainability-related activities in and around Cambridge. We are seeking one or two volunteers to help edit and publish the fortnightly bulletin and upload it onto the website. The editor writes a short introduction, makes a few web links, then publishes to our list, the Transition website, and finally posts links on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Some clever web wizardry collates all the listings for you. Commitment level: approx 1 hour per bulletin, on a rota with 3 others, over a time frame to suit you.
Skills: basic knowledge of Wiki mark-up language and social media (Twitter and Facebook) Full training offered, please contact the Bulletin Writers' Team to find out 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.

We always have opportunities for you to get involved over here on our volunteering page.
