Transition Town Totnes are launching the 2023 round of the Transition Streets project this month. 

People from Totnes, and communities within 10 miles, are invited to take part in an Intro Evening on Wednesday, 22 March, from 7-9 pm in Totnes. 

The event is for any individuals who would like support setting up a group on their street, plus anyone from interested community organisations.

The Transition Streets project supports groups of neighbours to build stronger connections and share more, from tools and equipment, to skills, transport, meals, growing spaces, friendship and support. People who take part report feeling a much stronger sense of belonging in the community.

Many streets then go on to set up projects including Play Streets sessions, street parties, garden sharing and growing projects, mending and making evenings, car and bike shares. The possibilities are endless. 

The session will cover everything that people need to set up a group in their street/village, so it would be great to have everyone who might be interested come along.

Transition Streets is a seven-session program that people take part in with their neighbours. Groups of six to eight households meet seven times over three to four months and in the process become better connected and support each other to take practical action individually and collectively to address the cost of living, energy and climate crises.

After some initial support from a Transition Streets facilitator at the first session, groups are then self-led. Everyone is given an easy-to-read Transition Streets Handbook and groups are guided through topics including Energy, Resource Use, Transport, Food and Water.
