A Transition Town
SLACC TT is organised loosely on the Transition Town model. We run projects around themes associated with Food, Energy and Buildings, Transport, Creativity.
A transition initiative (could be a town, village, college, etc) is a community-led project that links into the national ‘Transition Network’.

Here in South Lakes, the aim of SLACC Towards Transition is to address the twin issues of Climate Change and Peak Oil within the area by decreasing the dependence of the community on fossil fuels, lowering carbon emissions and by building a stronger, resilient community that is able to be more independent in areas such as food, energy, transport, healthcare and economics.
We believe that only with the cooperation and involvement of all sectors of the community – individuals, voluntary groups, local businesses, churches, council, schools – is it possible to deal collectively with the two greatest challenges facing us today and to come up with the solutions together.
SLACC tt is a registered charity (No: 1139474). It has Trustees who hold responsibility for the financial matters. Trustees meet bi-monthly. In addition a HUB meets on the alternate month to determine strategies to achieve our aims. Read about our projects on these pages and consider where your interests lie.
