What is Transition Bro Gwaun?
Transition Bro Gwaun is a community process of imagining and creating a future that addresses the challenges of climate change, resource depletion, including expensive oil and gas supplies, and an unsustainable economy reliant on growth. We aim to create the kind of community that makes the future more certain for our children and less dependent on resources from elsewhere. This has enormous implications not only for the environment, but also on an economic system that currently relies on unsustainable growth.
We aim to create a sustainable, prosperous society without growth, and without oil dependency.
Transition Bro Gwaun is one of a growing number of transition initiatives around the world, being inspired by the original model developed in Kinsale (Eire) under the guidance of Rob Hopkins in 2005. An important part of the Transition process involves finding and working with existing groups and organisations, as well as looking for new projects.
We publicise our work and Transition issues through regular meetings, talks to local groups, our stall at the Farmers Market, a regular e-mail newsletter, attending local events, and on its website.
