Transition Network was set up in spring 2007 to support Transition Initiatives around the world.  In Lincoln the Urban PIGs (Permaculture Interest Group) decided it wanted to be a seed group for Transition Lincoln. The group launched it’s ambitions to the wider public in 2008 by organising a screening of A Crude Awakening at Lincoln Drill Hall to raise awareness about climate change and peak oil.

We currently meet on the second Tuesday of the month at Revival, 18 Sincil Street (17:30-19:30).  We also have a Facebook page (‘Transition Lincoln’) and a rapidly growing mailing list of people who want to learn how they can become less oil dependant and find answers for all those aspects of life that this community needs in order to sustain itself and thrive. How are we going to:

  • significantly rebuild resilience (in response to peak oil)
  • drastically reduce carbon emissions (in response to climate change)?

We soon found that there are people interested in transition throughout Lincolnshire, with Louth and Horncastle now officially designated transition towns.

If you would like to keep up to date on environmental initiatives organised by Transition Lincoln contact Kate Bell and ask to be added to the Lincoln Environmental e-mail list.
