Join us for a fun and interactive introduction to the Transition movement. This tour will visit some of the environmental, social and economic projects associated and partnered with Transition Town Totnes, to give you an insight into how communities can work together to tackle some of our biggest challenges from climate change and food security, to energy shortages and creating strong local economies

Can’t do the above dates, or looking for something more bespoke?: If you can get a group together, contact us to discuss how we can do a tour especially for you. Our friends at Future Bound offer lots of opportunities to learn more about resilient communities and sustainability in action, working with schools, universities and visitors to Totnes. Find out more on their website

Cost: A voluntary donation is requested and any surplus after expenses goes towards the overheads of Transition Town Totnes, a registered charity. We suggest £20 for visitors and £10 for locals, but please pay what you can or what you think it is worth - it's up to you. And we really mean that - even if it is nothing! The most important thing is that you come.

Where: Market Square on Totnes High Street, between the tree and the ramp to the Civic Hall. We begin with introductions and then we will walk around town, stopping at various places of interest for a chat.

Contact: To book a place please email hello@futurebound.org.uk

Access: Please advise in advance of any mobility issues so we can make arrangements as necessary. Please note, the TTT offices do not have disabled access and the afternoon will involve plenty of time walking around town

"The Transition tour ... was extremely interesting and a great way to learn how people are putting ideas into practice in the field of sustainability. It complemented our week's activities at Schumacher very well, taking us into the 'real' world and seeing community-level action."
