Who we are

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.

Have a look at the About us page and other links in the menu at the top or in the left margin for further information about Teign Estuary Transition, our subgroups, and the Transition Movement.

You can see all our latest news below, or go to any of the categories under News in the left-hand margin for the latest information on specific activities.


Our Beautiful Planet

Teign Estuary Transition have been invited by TAAG to take part in two Earth Hour themed exhibitions; Our Beautiful Planet, which will run from the 30 January to the 12 February, and Earth Hour, on Saturday 19 March 2016.

The exhibition curator is Rachael Bennett, but if you’re up for adding a bit of inspiration to our displays at these exhibitions, developing a showcase for us, do get in touch,
