Transition Marlborough Groups
Transition Marlborough is 'organised' into a number of different Groups that each work independently within the context of our overall Constitution developing their own projects, with some overall coordination and steering provided by what is known as the Hub Group.
Anyone can join any of the Groups by becoming a TM Member, a simple sign-up process that just requires agreement to the Constitution (click here for more information).
The table below provides a summary of all the current Groups with a brief description of they each do and how to contact them.
Come and join us - and help to make the Marlborough area more sustainable as we all grapple with the impacts of depleting fossil fuel resources, climate change, and the resultant environmental and economic challenges.
