Aims & objectives

We aim to work to reduce the carbon footprint of the town in response to climate change and to prepare for the challenge of ‘peak oil’.

Our objectives are to:

  • promote a range of activities, including but not limited to public education, to affect personal, home and business behaviour, incorporating transport issues;
  • encourage and achieve reduction, reuse and recycling initiatives;
  •  work with local councils and other civic bodies to promote local trade initiatives and to reduce waste;
  • work towards achieving Transition Town status.
