Transition Exeter

Transition Exeter is a local response to the global challenges of climate change, economic hardship, and shrinking supplies of cheap energy. Our aims are to:

  • Increase the quality of life in Exeter, aiming for a healthier, happier and more empowered community
  • Reduce our negative impacts on the environment
  • Reduce the negative impacts on us of climate change



Residents across Devon are being urged to repair, refurbish and reuse.
