Do you want to live more sustainably?

In a more sustainable town?

In a more sustainable world?

It IS possible! But it's easier (and much more fun) to do it together.

This is where the Transition Towns movement comes in.

Tring is the world's fifty-first transition town - where communities get together and take the first steps from a wasteful, oil and car dependent consumer society to a safer, more responsible and happier one.

We only need to make small changes for big effects.

Tring in Transition ("TINT") is made up of action groups that try out all kinds of ways to become more sustainable. The action groups are:

FOOD        WASTE         ENERGY       TRANSPORT   TOURISM

Check out their pages and see what you can do to make some changes in your life.

Even better - JOIN US.

You can contact us at  transition@tringintransition.org.uk

We are non political, non religious, non profit - and are supported by Tring Town Council, Dacorum Borough Council, Hertfordshire County Council Grassroots initiative, and Chilterns AONB Sustainability initiative. Our aims are endorsed by Tring Town Council which itself has signed up to the 1010 initiative
