Transition Town Andover is a community initiative to reduce the town’s dependency on fossil fuels. The aim is to raise awareness of climate change and peak oil, and to help build community resilience using the resourcefulness of local people. Hundreds of towns in the UK and around the world are signing up the Transition Town movement and Andover is one of them.
Early in 2010 a small number of very committed people organised a public meeting to propose the idea of forming a Transition Town group in Andover. Following this meeting a core group was set up and a constitution drafted. Project working groups were set up on the themes of food, green communities and schools.
