TAKING 
ACTION

Tring in Transition is supporting the "52 Climate Actions" initiative - an easy to use "toolkit" of ideas to put into action.

 

You can find out more in our blog post about this here, or go direct to the 52 Climate actions website.


If you'd like to start using the internet in a more environmentally aware way you can see our article "The Internet and the Environment" and/or start using the Ecosia search engine.

FACEBOOK
GROUPS

There are 1000s of active climate and environment related groups on Facebook, these are a few that are relevant locally:

Green Tring - sharing many great local ideas and building a community of like-minded people.

Our own groups are Tring in Transition and

Tring Community Garden.

MOBILE

APPS

A growing number of Apps make it easier to start living the sustainable, resilient lives we aspire to.  We'll be adding to this in months ahead.

First, this is a challenge for you!  The National Grid ESO (Electricity System Operator) have a great little app that shows how much of our energy is carbon free in real time.   We haven't figured out how to link to it yet......but you can find it by searching for "nationalgrid ESO".

 

And we like the "Grown Your Own" app by the RHS.
 

LOCAL
GROUPS

Too many to list, but here are a few we work with and/or do good things with.

 

Tring Together  All about making life better in Tring

 

Justice & Peace Tring   Doing great work on Fairtrade, listing where to buy locally produced food and much more.



There's also great local and generic information on Dacorum's website:

GLOBAL
GROUPS

A growing number of global, groups champion the cause for environmental action relating to climate change, sustainability of world resources, pollution etc.

These are a few we like for different reasons.

Through hands-on action the Ellen MacArthur Foundation demonstrates how circular economy ideas have a key role to play.
