Transition Cambridge aims to help Cambridge make the transition to ways of life that are more resilient in the face of rising energy prices and a changing climate.
Charlotte and the Empty Common Community Garden team have made a wonderful video showing how their beautiful new hut came into being, and demonstrating some of its features. Watch it here. And do come along to our summer picnic there on Sunday 25th June, or to one of our regular garden mornings on Sundays, to see the new hut for yourself. More...

Online - two one-hour sessions 19:30-20:30 add to google calendar
These sessions are intended for people who are interested in running a Repair Cafe. Part 1 (14 September) - Is this for me? This session will give you an overview of what's involved in running a Repair Cafe. You'll meet existing Repair Cafe organisers, meet other people thinking of starting one up, find out about first steps to get you started and have the chance to ask any questions. Part 2 (26 September) Step-by-step guide: We'll take you through the various resources available to support you and go through a step-by-step example of how to organise a Repair Cafe. Again there'll be plenty of opportunity for questions. To book your free place for both sessions, please fill in this form. Both sessions will take place on zoom. Depending on interest, we may divide the group up by location and offer additional dates. We recommend that you find 2 to 3 people from your organisation/local area who are interested in running a Repair Cafe and all attend the training. More...

Repair Cafes are community events that match people who need stuff fixed with people who like fixing things. They're completely non-commercial, though donations to running costs are welcome. There are no promises or guarantees, but if something can be saved, repairers will do everything they can. Repairers are always keen to teach visitors how to do the repair themselves and at the very least watch while they do it. Successful repair rates are currently around 65%. NB you'll need to book your item in - bookings open a couple of weeks before. Autumn repair cafes include Burwell and Willingham (24 September), Eversden and St Ives (30 September), Barrington (7 October), Trumpington (8 October), Cottenham (14 October), Cambridge (21 October) and Soham (22 October). You can check future dates, book things in, check venues, times etc here. Supported by the Cambridgeshire Repair Cafe Network (CRCN) - a partnership between Cambridge Carbon Footprint, Transition Cambridge and others. More...
