This is the web site for Teign Estuary Transition: a local initiative to help communities around the Teign Estuary explore collaborative ways to move towards a low energy, sustainable future.
It has been started by an enthusiastic group of local people who are concerned about the twin challenges of diminishing oil and gas supplies, known as ‘Peak Oil’, and climate change. We believe that these challenges offer opportunities for a step-by-step ‘transition’ to a sustainable future.
