At present, Transition Leicester is working on four long-term projects:

  • Footpaths, which brings friends and neighbours together to help them reduce their carbon footprint through a series of regular meetings
  • Community Harvest Whetstone which involves food growers and consumers in producing sustainable local food together
  • The Apple Press project, through which users of the press make and preserve apple juice each autumn
  • Our monthly “Green Grub Café”, which provides a space to eat delicious local food and to learn practical craft skills

In the past, we also worked on a short-term project to promote an alternative vision for the proposed Ecotown for Leicestershire.

Over time we’d love to see many other projects happen to help Transition Leicester achieve its aims. These could be anything from practical projects such as tree planting or skill sharing workshops, to awareness-raising projects such as regular film showing and discussion nights.

As Transition Leicester is a volunteer-led initiative, any project relies upon the motivation of people acting on something they’re passionate about to make it happen. So please consider getting involved with our existing projects, or think about projects that you’d love to initiate yourself that could be done under the Transition Leicester banner.
