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.

Sunday 25th November: Cambridge Literary Festival - Lucy Siegle

Palmerston Room St John's College Cambridge CB2 1TP 11:30-12:30 add to google calendar
Enough plastic is thrown away every year to circle the world four times - and at the current rate, plastic will outnumber fish in the ocean by 2050. We might have thought that the problem would be solved by corporations and policymakers, but change isn't happening fast enough. Rather than flailing in despondency, we need to take individual action - and Lucy Siegle wants to give us the tools to make this decisive change. It's time to turn the tide on plastic; join Lucy to find out how- In conversation with Rob Cameron, Chief Executive, SustainAbility.

Cambridge Carbon Footprint and Transition Cambridge will have a stall at this event. Registration required. 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!
