About Us

Transition Bookham 

 

Who's involved?


We're just local people who care about reducing our impact on the planet. We worry about the issues but we're trying to do something about them. If you'd like to join us on our Plastic Free journey or take on a project of your own, please get in touch. You don't need to be an expert on the environment or have any special skills: just a desire to make a difference. There's no membership form, fee or any formal joining process!

 

What have we done?


We've aimed to raise awareness of environmental issues by:

Taking part in Village Day

  • hosting talks, workshops and discussions
  • producing leaflets and sharing information via this website, social media and regular newsletters
  •  taking part in Village Day and other events
  •  projects - currently Plastic Free Bookham only
  •  

     
     

The Transition Movement

The Transition Movement is about finding ways to change our lifestyles to cope with the challenges that we face today, such as the depletion of the planet's resources and climate change. Transition started in one town - Totnes, in Devon - and now has well over a thousand groups all over the world. Transition groups believe that by working together as a community we can make a bigger difference than as individuals.
