Transition Lymington is a part of the wider New Forest Transition movement. It formed in response to a number of our current social and environmental issues, namely climate change, impending oil shortage and economic uncertainty.
Transition Lymington is striving for a 'transition' from our current way of life to a better one. Away from our high dependence on fossil fuels for transportation, energy, food production and consumables towards a strong future, built on low carbon economy, local food production and local energy production.
Transition is a group that believes in responding to sustainability and environmental problems as a community, creating very positive alternatives.
By taking action locally, we will be able to making the community more self-reliant and resilient to change. At the same time, the aim is to reduce our environmental impact and, in the longer term, reduce costs.
Our vision is to be in a place where our buildings, vehicles and appliances are very energy efficient, we walk or cycle locally, our power is made from renewable sources (rather than dwindling overseas ones) and we are self sufficient for the greatest possible number of our needs - food, energy, transportation, health and housing.
Transition in Lymington aims to raise awareness of these issues and build on the momentum of New Forest Transition, specifically concentrating on projects in the SO41 postcode areas. Let's work together for a more sustainable future - we welcome everyone to our regular, friendly meetings and events.
