‘Transition’ is used as a shorthand way of describing the transition that we need make – individually, and as a society – from our current unsustainable ways of living, to ways of living that enable us to meet the economic, environmental and social challenges that we are facing through climate change and peak oil.
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: 1) increase the quality of life in Exeter, aiming for a healthier, happier and more empowered community; 2) reduce our negative impacts on the environment, and 3) reduce the negative impacts on us of climate change.
Transition Exeter is a member of Transition Network, a movement of communities coming together to re-imagine and rebuild our world. Read more on the Transition Network website.
Transition Exeter operates and aims to deliver against our core set of values:
- Energy efficiency, renewable energy and reduced dependence on fossil fuels
- Sustainable forms of transport
- Development of a sustainable economy
- Local production of food and other goods and services
- Reduction of consumption and waste
- Community building and mutual support
- Adapting to the negative impacts that we already expect will come our way
