About Us

Transition Scilly started in 2008 as a community led response to climate change. It’s about what everyone can do in a practical way to cut carbon whilst creating a happier and more resilient society.

So what does that mean? We embrace local food, renewable energy, walking and cycling, saving energy, repairing and recycling, and lots more. Read more to find out what we do and how we can help you lead a lower impact and more content life.
