What is Transition?


What is transition about?  Transition Ashtead is a non political group of local people who got together to meet the potential challenges of resource depletion, CO2 emissions,  climate disruption & uncertainty and the many pressures on our environment.

We are united by a belief that together we can make a real difference for the future, that by taking small steps to change our life styles. One of our aims is to raise awareness of the issues so we can all learn about the global problems and what we can do to help locally. The five key areas are:

Energy, Food, Transport, Biodiversity and Waste & Recycling.

The enthusiasm and input from residents, business and local organisations makes a huge difference to what we can achieve.  Please join us and see what we can do if we all work together. The idea is that we ‘transition’ gradually towards making Ashtead a greener and more sustainable village. We can have fun, and strengthen the community on the way!

Transition Ashtead is just one of over 300 groups across the world. For more about the Transition Network http://www.transitionnetwork.org/

We have regular Open Meetings with films, speakers, and discussions on the 2nd Thursday of the month (except August), 7.30pm at the Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall. See Events for more details and reports of previous meetings.
