Welcome to Transition Town Farnham.
We are a newly-forming group of local people, part of a movement that is spreading across the UK and around the world.
“Transition Towns” work to make their local areas more ‘resilient’ to the effects of climate change and ‘peak oil’. (Peak oil is basically the idea that as we are now starting to run out of oil and gas, prices will continue to rise, and this will have many, significant, knock-on effects on the way we live. You can find out more here.)
Transition Towns work to reduce the negative effects of these changes, and increase the positive ones.
We are looking for people who would like to to find out more and possibly get involved. We will be holding a kick-off event on 11 September at the Maltings, where we will show two short films that explain what Peak Oil is, how it will change our lives, and what we can do about it. Details are given below.
In the meantime you can use these pages to find out more about Peak Oil and the Transition Movement.
If you can’t come along on the 11th but are interested, please do contact us.
If you know someone else who would be interested, please help to spread the word.
