A warm welcome awaits! TransitionCambridge is a great place to meet new people who are interested in creating low impact sustainable lifestyles, to practise or share your skill sets and even learn a few new ones. Here are a few current opportunities .
Are you friendly, outgoing and love to chat? Then you'll enjoy helping with our information and outreach stalls programme. We currently do around 4 -7 stalls per year, mostly small scale between 3 and 5 hours duration each. A team of 2 or 3 coordinators work together to plan an attractive display and theme, advertise the event and coordinate stall helpers and assemble the stalls kit. On the day, you'll help to set up or pack up the stall, talk to visitors about our projects and take email addresses from people who want to receive our news bulletin. Information stalls are a great way to promote our vision for healthy resilient communities and inspire people to join in. Own vehicle transport is occasionally useful but not essential for transporting stalls kit. Commitment level : 3-7 hours per stall depending on event size. Please get in touch for more information.

Practise your editorial skills by joining our Bulletin writers' team! A nifty bit of Wiki code takes care of collating the events and news, the editor writes a short introduction, makes a few web links, and a few clicks later it's ready to send! Social media users can join in by posting to our Facebook and Twitter accounts. The bulletin reaches around 2000 people and is much appreciated as one of the best round-ups of sustainability-related activities in and around Cambridge. A couple of additional team members ( we are 4 at the moment) would help us increase to weekly editions and give team members more frequent breaks. Commitment level: 1-2 hours per bulletin, over a time frame to suit you. Get in touch if you'd like to be part of the bulletin-writing team! (Posted 20 October 2017)
Practise your networking skills and get right into the heart of Cambridge's thriving, burgeoning sustainability and activism scene! Cambridge Climate Alliance (CCA) exists to bring together groups within the city working on sustainability-related issues. The liaison Rep reports to CCA members on Transition activities and to Transition's Hub with news of what other groups are working on. and helps to organise cross community activities. With the increasingly urgent need to adopt renewable energy systems and take action to mitigate climate change, it's vital that we maintain good contact with like minded groups Commitment level: around 5 - 8 hours per month - 2 meetings and some admin - writing short email reports and sharing news across our media platforms. Get in touch for more info. (Posted 21 October 2017)
We are hoping to get the Transition Cafe up and running again. Our cafe nights are ways for new people to come and find out what Transition Cambridge is about, for regulars to come along and have a chat, and for us to offer a range of events and activities as people offer them or ask for them. We'd like a team of people to help run these evenings, from helping with the cafe, to organising the speakers/films, to advertising etc. If you could help with any of these tasks (or something else we haven't thought of), either occasionally or regularly, we'd love to hear from you!

Romsey Community Garden is now 3 years old and has been doing very well with a core group of local people who come along regularly and a couple of "mystery" gardeners who do a lot of the hard work for us! Mags left Cambridge a while back and Anna, the current coordinator, would like to take a break, so a new coordinator would be very welcome. People really love the garden and we'd like to make sure that it continues to flourish, so please get in touch if you'd like to do this! (Posted 15 June 2015)
