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.

If you live in the local community, contact us to share your ideas or take part in projects. Join the mailing list to keep updated, or watch this space.
