Transition Marlborough aims to protect our town and the surrounding area from the rising costs of food, energy and transport which are being driven by the global challenges of depleting fossil fuel resources, climate change, and the resultant environmental impacts.

Transition Network Endorsement Marque We are doing this by promoting community driven projects in renewable energy, food sovereignty, sustainable transport and recycling in all its forms, and as part of the overall Transition Movement we are contributing to the two critical issues of peak oil and climate change. Our approach to addressing these issues is underpinned by permaculture philosophy and ethics. We believe that the transition to a more resilient and happy life cannot happen without reducing the gross inequality in our society.

By finding sustainable local solutions, we aim to help make the Marlborough area a more positive and rewarding place to live, work and visit, and contribute to creating a more sustainable future for everyone. This was given a further boost when Marlborough Town Council joined the Transition movement at the October 2011 full town council meeting.

To find out more about the six key project areas of Permaculture, Energy, Food, Transport, Recycling, and Climate use the menus above and the 'About us' menus that will show how you can get involved.

If you want to visit the town of Marlborough or the Marlborough area there is a wide range of tourist information plus details about the Free Community WiFi on the not-for-profit Community site available by clicking here or another commercial tourism site is here.
