Transition Cornwall+Transition Cornwall

Transition Cornwall+ is a community group created to build resilience and sustainability in Cornwall and the surrounding rural area (the + in our name) in preparation for the combined challenges of peak oil, climate change, and global economic instability.

We believe that with thoughtful and deliberate planning, the transition to life without cheap fuel will be far gentler, and our community can become an even more fulfilling, socially connected, sustainable, and self-reliant place to live. But we have to act together, and we have to act now.

Transition Cornwall+ is part of an international Transition movement that began in the United Kingdom in 2005 and has since spread to hundreds of communities around the world. We are one of over 50 Canadian communities associated with the international Transition Network.

Our Purpose
Transition Cornwall+ aims to inspire everyone in the Cornwall area to work together to increase our community's capacity to thrive in the face of peak oil, climate change, and global economic instability. We intend to:

  • Raise awareness about these upcoming challenges
  • Work with people and groups already active with these issues
  • Lead a dynamic community process that unleashes the collective genius of our citizens for imagining and planning for a better future
  • Create and implement a long-term plan to systematically reduce fossil fuel dependency in the Cornwall area
