Transition Bristol is run by volunteers and acts as a hub for a network of Transition Neighbourhoods across the city. It is working to raise awareness of Climate Change and Peak Oil and the impacts both will have on our lives.
We’re not offering the solution – rather we believe that there are many solutions and that the skills, knowledge, creativity and experience of the community is where they can be found. What we aim to end up with is an Energy Descent Action Plan – a timetabled, well thought out plan for Bristol’s transition from an energy dependent system to a locally resilient, sustainable, productive and vibrant city. We think decreasing our dependence on fossil fuels could be an opportunity to create a better standard of living than we have now, where community is more important than consuming.
See the events page for details of all the exciting events that are going on around Bristol and Bristol’s Transition Neighbourhoods.
The Transition process is constantly evolving, as more of us take up the challenge and run with it, flexibly adapting to the situations around us. There is more work to do before we can truly “unleash the collective genius” of the whole of Bristol. Get involved!
