About us

Your local community preparing for change

The transition to a low energy future is inevitable. Whether this is a sudden crash or a managed descent is in our hands. The supply of oil is at the peak and will soon decline, water is becoming a scarce resource in some places, other resources are being squandered, and combating the effects of extreme weather attributed to climate change is urgent. We are promoting a local community preparing for these changes. We work positively together to look climate change, resource depletion, and species extinction squarely in the eye. We address this big question: starting now, how can we sustain our local community and thrive during the next few decades?

Creating a better Bournemouth

Transition Towns initiatives are local communities who are reducing the effects of peak oil and climate change. As part of this thriving local, national, and international movement, Transition Bournemouth helps bring people together and tries to create a better, more sustainable, resilient, and environmentally friendly place for us all to live.
