Working together for a low carbon Portishead
Transition Portishead aims to help the people of Portishead work together as a community to adapt to a changing and uncertain future.
The twin problems of Climate Change and Peak Oil present massive challenges to societies across the world.
Effective responses need to be made at global and national levels. However this will not be enough if we, individually, do not respond with equal urgency and commitment.
Transition Portishead is raising awareness about these issues, organising projects around the themes of food, energy, and recycling, and running a programme of workshops with local schools.
If you'd like to support us and be kept in touch with the latest news please send us an email.
