Q: Why should we care?
A: Because climate change and depleting resources will make our lives increasingly difficult …
unless we start to change the way we live now.

The idea of Transition is for people to work together with others on projects that will help the community to thrive even as we adapt to cope with fluctuating energy prices and climate change.

Anyone who lives or works in Buxton and the surrounding catchment area can be a member of Transition Buxton CIC – the Application form is here. We are happy to accept donations from members and  supporters, see the Funding and Donations page for more information.

We have groups working on a range of projects – a community orchard, a floating solar array, a home energy scheme, producing more food locally, encouraging better use of public transport and cycling – browse our site to find out more.

For more information about why we need to do this, check out the Oil Dependency and Climate Change pages.
