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.

Come along and join us!

Transition Bournemouth meet regularly on the third Thursday of every month in a friendly informal gathering, where we discuss topical issues, review and celebrate our achievements, and plan future activity (see ‘Gatherings’ tab for details). Our local sister groups in the area are Transition Town Poole and Transition Town Christchurch, all working together under the umbrella group of Transition BH Hub.

Please feel free to contact us with any queries about Transition Bournemouth or any of the exciting projects we’re involved in.
