Transition Bro Gwaun is relocating office space to The Gateway Club, off Clive Road, Fishguard. Together with Abergwaun Gateway Club, Transition Bro Gwaun hope to upgrade the facilities to allow more community use of the building. If you are interested in finding out more, or to get involved please contact us.
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.

Film screening – Demain (Tomorrow)
at Queen’s Hall, Narberth
A rare opportunity to see Demain (French for “Tomorrow”) at a film screening organised by Span Arts in partnership with WOW Wales One World Film Festival and Transition Bro Gwaun’s Make a Meal of It project.
This feel-good, inspirational movie is about the pioneers reinventing agriculture, transport, energy, the economy, democracy and education around the world. Featuring a number of Transition Towns and Transition Network founder, Rob Hopkins. This film reveals the ways in which activists and citizens are making the world a better, greener, more sustainable place.
A shared meal will be available after the film, prepared by volunteers and using many surplus ingredients. Tickets available from Span Arts. There will be a community bus available for a small fee, get in touch with cheerful [at] span-arts.org.uk if you need a lift.
Watch this space, events in Fishguard will be coming!
At the moment we are settling into our new home at Abergwaun Gateway Club and working with other local groups to improve the facilities.
If you’d like to get involved, can offer assistance, or would like to know more about this please contact us.
