Welcome to Transition Harborough a grass roots community lead environmental group tackling the issues of climate change and Peak Oil through a strategy of re-localisation of goods and services.

Forget the hum drum of environmental and green lobbying and welcome to the empowerment of the community to sculpt its own destiny through its collective genius by re-visioning the purpose of our settlement. Life and Transition should be a party.

Not sure what “Peak Oil” is about then read the Nitty and the Gritty here.
