- this web page has served us well but has now become very clunky and hard to maintain - we apologise for this and we are currently designing a brand new web set up.
Please bear with us.

Who? What? Why?
- we are ordinary local people – we are not the Council!
- it finds local, positive, practical ways to build community resilience in the face of global challenges
- it’s fun
– more a party than a protest!
Transition City Lancaster - TCL - started off in
2008 in Margaret’s front room when six of us met and decided to try
start some ‘transition’
activities in Lancaster. We have grown steadily and in june 2012 we set up our very own 'community interest
company' to allow us to scale up what we do . . . . Click here to find out about the new company.
The international transition network is a movement of local
communities – towns, villages, cities . . . creating positive,
practical locally based
responses to global challenges. See http://transitiontowns.org for
info on the
Transition focus on building local community resilience to these major global challenges - click the links for snippets of film/info . . .

The story so far . . . .
We even have a TCL film (Preview) launched in April 2011 on our second birthday. and all the TCL events are listed in the Whats On page and for a flavour of some of the projects see the (slightly out of date - it moves all the time) project map.
TCL works – and plays – through it’s groups. At
the present time there are ten active groups. Please see the
. All the groups are open to all. The Steering
Group at the core
has delegates from each group and meets twice a month. There is
also a monthly ‘network’ meeting which connects the groups together –
and anyone else who chooses to join in! membership of TCL is open
– please click here to sign up for the monthly e newsletter
A particular Transition approach is to create a ‘Timeline’
say from 2010 to 2030 for Lancaster. This helps us to map out the
changes we’ll need to happen in our City to become resilient and
to cut our
footprint Citywide. Click here for detailed information on
what is a timeline/edap . There are lots of details and resources linked from the local TCL EDAP page
