aims to protect our town and the surrounding area from the rising costs
of food, energy and transport which are being driven by the global
challenges of depleting fossil fuel resources, climate change, and the
resultant economic and environmental impacts.
Use the main menus above to find out more about the individual Transition Groups (Bee Road, Permaculture, Hub ( management ) and our Initial Energy, Food, Transport, Recycling, Climate Groups ) and the projects they have started – the ‘About us’ menus will also show you how you can get involved.
We believe that by promoting community driven projects in renewable
energy, food sovereignty, sustainable transport and recycling in all its
forms, and as part of the overall Transition Movement we are contributing to the two critical issues of peak oil and climate change. Our approach to addressing these issues is underpinned by the permaculturephilosophy
and ethics. We believe that the transition to a more resilient and
happy life cannot happen without reducing inequality in our society.
By finding sustainable local solutions, we aim to help make the
Marlborough area a more positive and rewarding place to live, work and
visit, and contribute to creating a more sustainable future for
We were very pleased by the further boost given to our activities when Marlborough Town Council joined the Transition movement at the October 2011 full town council meeting.
