The planet should not be used as a warehouse of resources to serve humanity's selfishness.
About Transition Buxton
Transition Buxton was set up in June 2008. For the first two years we ran with a steering group, on an interim constitution, while we worked out how we wanted to organise ourselves. We concentrated mainly on raising awareness and recruiting people to join our ranks. Project groups were formed to take on areas such as Food, Energy and Transport, and are developing schemes that will make a real difference in the community.
We opened Transition Buxton to 'membership' in July 2010, when we held our first Annual General Meeting. This formally adopted the constitution and elected a co-ordinating group to replace the original steering group.
Anyone who lives or works in Buxton and the surrounding catchment area can be a member of Transition Buxton. You need to fill in the application form (appended to the constitution), confirm that you will abide by the constitution and pay a one off joining fee of £1. We encourage people to do this, but you are very welcome to join in any of our activities, or get involved in developing projects, member or not.
