TRANSITION LOSTWITHIEL

LostwithielClimate change and increasing energy costs will alter our way of life - how we work, shop, travel and live will need to adapt.

Transition Lostwithiel is about using our own creativity and talent to build a closer and more resilient community for everyone to enjoy. It's about making a transition from an unsustainable way of life to a sustainable one.
