Transition Stroud is a dynamic group of volunteers who are supporting the local community to strengthen its’ local economy, reduce the cost of living and prepare for a future with less oil and a changing climate. Anyone can be involved. Everyone is needed. We began in 2006, and are one of over 1000 similar initiatives around the world developing practical answers to the question – “How can our community respond to the challenges, and opportunities, of Peak Oil and Climate Change?”
We also run regular ‘SkillsGain’ courses – workshops on a variety of relevant topics from composting to ethical consumerism, ecological footprinting to Joanna Macy’s work on “Active Hope”. The next session is on “Twitter for community benefit” on 23rd February and 8th March.
