Transition Stroud is a network for local people and groups working on the transition to a locally-based low carbon lifestyle.

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?

"A future without oil could be better than the present if we use our imagination and think creatively."

Transition Stroud Eco Open Homes 2014


We are in the process of putting together the next major event for Transition Stroud – Eco Open Homes – which will be on Saturday and Sunday, May 3rd and 4th 2014. House_3-2

Past Open Homes events have been a roaring success drawing in hundreds of visitors. This year a record 27 homes will be open to the public giving visitors a chance to learn from homeowners and get lots of ideas about how their home can be more energy efficient.

As well as helping to inform others about benefits of a low carbon lifestyle the event brings Stroud together to celebrate homes that are fit for the future.

Switch to Ecotricity with Transition Stroud.

We have teamed up with local green energy supplier, Ecotricity, who will donate up to £60 to Transition Stroud each time someone switches energy supplier to them and quotes either TRS1 or Transition Stroud. Changing to Ecotricity has two other benefits; firstly it supports the building and supply of green energy production and secondly at 250 employees they are the largest employer in Stroud bringing a significant footfall into the town.

If you switch electricity we get £40; for changing to both electricity and gas we receive £60.

So, if you’re thinking of changing supplier sign up with Ecotricity today, quote the code and know that you’re also supporting Transition Stroud.’

If you prefer to sign up over the 'phone you need to quote ‘Transition Stroud’ or the source code ‘TRS1’.
