BE the transition away from unsustainable living


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.


Bollington residents are driving *local* grassroots community actions that bring folk together for sustainability, resilience, social change and earth happiness in our happy valley community & its local economy.

Transition Bollington facilitates Community Conversations that springboard initiatives for sustainable, resilient futures and promote eco-friendly and green lifestyles. As an action group we take on projects that address the core principles of transition in the journey away from fossil dependency.

Our upcoming meetings are listed on the Events tab, and are also advertised on Facebook (see link 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 website.
