BE the transition away from unsustainable lifestyles
Bollington - a Transition Town
Transition moves away from unsustainable lifestyles, behaviours & production to alternative cleaner technologies, energies & more socially integrated, resilient communities. Becoming a transition town will benefit Bollington, enhance its tourism credentials and foster social togetherness with reduced fossil dependency.
Transition Bollington facilitates Community Conversations that springboard initiatives for sustainable, resilient futures and promote social inclusivity and eco-friendly lifestyles. As an action group we take on projects that address the core principles of transition in the journey away from fossil dependency.
Upcoming get togethers are listed on the Events tab, and are also advertised on Facebook & Instagram (see links at foot of page). We share ideas in an open forum and welcome new faces, ideas and input.
By nature, transition is diverse, inclusive and apolitical. For more information on the Transition movement, please visit the transitionnetwork.org website. While you're there, click on 'Groups' and find us on the world map!
