Transition Bristol is a volunteer-led initiative and part of the worldwide Transition Movement. It acts in support of city-level resilience projects in Bristol.
The Transition Movement idea is that our biggest asset is the skills knowledge creativity & experience within our own communities.
The Transition idea underpins many projects that are already strengthening local resilience.
Decreasing our use of fossil fuels is not negotiable. We believe in choosing to make this shift in a way that builds community.
The Transition process is constantly evolving, as more of us take up the challenge and run with it, flexibly adapting to the situations around us. The work of “unleashing the collective genius” of the city will always be 'work in progress'.
Transition Bristol’s Roots
Transition Bristol was originated by Sarah Pugh and others in January 2007. The organisation was formally registered in June 2007 as a Limited Liability Company Registered by Guarantee.
After ten years, and successful incubation of numerous themed projects (see Timeline), the Limited Liability Company was replaced in January 2017 with a simple Community Association.
The Constitution is here. The current volunteers are Chris Bettles, Zoë Moyden, Jane Stott, Angela Raffle, Chris Richards, Jeremy Le Févre & Kristin Sponsler, with new volunteers always in the offing. A wide circle of 'Transition Bristol Eldership' supports the volunteer team.
