Stop Press... COP26
In 2019 our town's council declared a climate emergency. Now we, as residents, have the opportunity to reimagine Bollington and create a new sustainable future for our community. In the wider picture, this Autumn the UK hosts the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference. How can we inspire climate action in our own community?
Formed in 2017, all welcome, get involved!
Bollington residents driving *local* grassroots community projects that promote sustainability, resilience and earth happiness in our community & local economy.
Transition moves away from unsustainable lifestyles, behaviours & production to alternative technologies, energies & more resilient communities.
Our upcoming meetings are listed on the Events tab, and are also advertised on our Facebook group (see link at foot of page). We chat about projects and share ideas in an open forum and welcome new faces, ideas and input.
By nature, transition is diverse, inclusive and apolitical. Leave your politics and muddy wellies at the door, and join the Transition!
For more information on the subject of social change please visit the transitionnetwork.org website.
Get in touch, give feedback or join in...
Transition Bollington currently has four action groups with interests aligned with the overall transition aims. These groups are all community led, by local volunteers.
If you have a great new idea, wish to give feedback or would like to get involved in a specific initiative, get in touch via the Contact Us form or our social media sites (Facebook, Instagram).
Otherwise you're more than welcome to just attend the general transition meetings and hear what the groups have been up to recently.
