The end of cheap oil is in sight. Currently our lives depend on the abundance of oil and other fossil fuels: for travel, heating, manufacturing and food production. As demand for oil starts to outstrip supply (‘peak oil’) there are significant impacts on our day-to-day life.
Fossil fuel use has also caused changes to our climate that disrupt natural systems and human livelihoods around the world, including here in Stroud.
“Climate change makes reducing our use of fossil fuels essential;
peak oil makes it inevitable”
An alternative way….
If we plan and act together we can create a way of living that’s more connected and more vibrant than the oil-addicted treadmill we find ourselves on today.
Transition is about re-creating our future based on localised food, sustainable energy, local economies and an enlivened sense of community well-being.
