Transition Tynedale is a group of local people who have come together to further the aims and action of the international Transition Movement. Transition Towns, as they are generally known, develop positive action to counter two huge global problems: Peak Oil (energy will become scarcer and more expensive) and Climate Change. Local initiatives are designed to build a more resilient and sustainable local community.
Our stated aims and objectives of Transition Tynedale are:
- To build resilience and sustainability into our local community by:
creating, supporting and encouraging local solutions to the global problems of peak oil, climate change and economic crisis;
- raising awareness of the issues associated with the challenges of peak oil, climate change and economic crisis and the consequent need to develop a low carbon, sustainable future through ethical, social, cultural, economic, environmental and community action;
- supporting and working with other TransitionTowns and similar community-led initiatives; and
- engaging with individuals and organisations, including statutory, voluntary and business where appropriate.
Information and updates on our projects and activities are given on other pages. Click on a sub-menu for further details on specific projects or the main headings to find blog entries on general topics.
Please feel free to comment or to be in touch. If you have an idea for positive action, and are willing to commit to it, you’ll find like-minded people within the group who are willing to help turn your idea into reality.
We have a general meeting, open to everyone, on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. at Scott’s cafe at the Forum Cinema, Hexham. Come along and see what you can do.
