Transition Edinburgh’s Mission
Transition Edinburgh connects and supports community groups, and initiates practical projects that strive for a greener, fairer, healthier and more resilient Edinburgh.
Our outcomes for 2011/12 are:
- new and existing Transition groups feel better supported, encouraged and connected.
- City government and institutions are more aware of, and give better support to local groups.
- the broader city-wide, community-led movement in Edinburgh is more visible to more people, and so is able to be more effective.
A Transition Initiative is a community working together to look Peak Oil and Climate Change squarely in the eye and address this BIG question:
“for all those aspects of life that this community needs in order to sustain itself and thrive, how do we significantly increase resilience (to mitigate the effects of Peak Oil) and drastically reduce carbon emissions (to mitigate the effects of Climate Change)?”
Edinburgh has a city-wide identity as well as multiple local geographical groups.
To join in locally or city-wide see the other pages tabs or contact us (above), or come along to one of the Events of Interest (on the right).
