Transition Hertford is part of the Transition Network, a global movement and a charitable organisation that aims to help encourage, train and support communities to build healthy local economies, reduce CO2 emissions and dependence on oil.
What is ‘Transition’?
When we use the term 'transition' we’re talking about the changes we need to make to get to a low-carbon, socially just, healthier and happier future, which is more enriching and more gentle on the earth than the way most of us live today.
In our vision of the future, people work together to find ways to live with a lot less reliance on fossil fuels, much reduced carbon emissions, improved wellbeing for all and stronger local economies. The Transition movement is a social experiment, in which communities learn from each other and are part of a global and historic push towards a better future for us and the planet.
Our aim is to build a strong local community through:
Addressing climate change and peak oil consumption
Green energy and saving saving energy
Supporting the local economy
Encouraging sustainable transport initiatives
Preserving and improving the local environment
Growing food and reducing food miles
Sustainability and permaculture
Sharing, repairing, recycling, re-using
Transition Hertford is open to anyone who shares some or all of these aims. The more of us there are, the more effective we can be. Find out about joining. It’s free! Like us on Facebook to show your support and see posts about sustainability.
