Salisbury Transition City (STC) is a community-led and run local group that is committed to helping Salisbury adapt to a future lived in balance with the ‘natural world’ on which we depend. A City made up of resilient and adaptable communities working together to value every resident and to provide a city fit for purpose for future generations.
Since its inception in 2014 and formal launch a year later, Salisbury Transition City has become an established organisation in the life of Salisbury.
Consulted regularly by both County and City Councils STC has been a prominent force in initiating, fostering and bringing about local changes in resource conservation, recycling, renewable energy and improvements in the local environment. A key achievement has been to overall raise awareness, with other local environmental organisations, of the need for the local community to adopt new, sustainable lifestyles.
The original team (the steering group) that founded STC has recently undertaken a search for new recruits to take STC forward into a new decade, to tackle the increasingly urgent challenges we face (including climate and ecological emergencies, species extinctions, pandemics and other natural disasters) as the planetary systems that we depend on are thrown out of balance by our continuing consumption and unsustainable lifestyles in the developed world.
The new team are now in place and initial on-line and in-person (distanced) meetings and gatherings are now taking place. A initial summary document from the new team can be read here.
If any of you have any comments on these changes, or have further suggestions to make, or – best of all – would like to become actively involved, we would very much like to hear from you. For those members who have been actively involved in the past, we ask for your patience whilst we get up to speed and develop a full roadmap for STC in the coming years – and your input to help us understand all the initiatives that may still be underway. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are currently transitioning to a new website, so some of the pages are out of date. Please bear with us while we carry out these changes.
