The Transition Town Berkhamsted movement aims to enable and encourage our community to develop local resources that will allow us to make the transition away from fossil fuel dependence towards a safe, sustainable and healthy lifestyle for the future.
Transition Town Berkhamsted aims to make the town we live in a more sustainable and vibrant place. We look to encourage stronger social networks, a more robust local supply chain, in food and other services, and we aim to make the town more resilient to external shocks, such as recessions, commodity price rises and climate change.
The mission of TTB is built on three pillars – to Engage, Educate and Act.
- Engage: Influence and collaborate with other community organisations to create an exciting future. Harness creativity, experience, passion and innovation as tools to engage with others and find solutions to challenges.
- Educate: Share information and knowledge effectively in order to learn, develop and thrive.
- Act: Take practical action on Energy, Transport, Waste, Food, and Communications in order to support our community and future well-being.
To build on this and to recognise that Berkhamsted is not alone, we also work with the wider transition network to influence policies at a regional, national and global level.
