Founded in 2009
Our first event was a screening of ‘the power of community’ which inspired us to start Transition Keynsham.
We thought if we could find a way to connect like-minded people who worry about climate change then we could learn together, share knowledge and support each other as we make changes to the way we live.

Why does it matter?
Each year we reach ‘Earth Overshot Day’ earlier, the day we exceed the resources the earth can generate in one year. We know our government needs to do more to protect our planet and we know they aren’t doing enough.
This year, 2021 it was on the 29th July which is worrying. The biggest changes need to come from big business. But we know that we need more than a handful of people doing sustainable living perfectly. We need millions doing it imperfectly to make a difference.

What can you do?
As a consumer you can add pressure to the government by how you spend our money. We can live our lives proving to them that as voters we care about the planet.
By coming together as a community we can shout louder. We are not activists but believe that if we work together we are much more visible. This has been proven by the support we receive from the Town Council with our projects. In the form of grants and space in Keynsham Memorial Park for our community allotment.
We have 3 projects running at the moment. You are welcome to join us, just let us know you are coming and we will make sure you have all the details you need.
Projects since 2009

“The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.”
