How it started. Taking our first steps.
Kew The Transition was created after a public assembly was called in Kew to think about how the community could be cleaner and greener.
The people who came along to that first meeting realised that the Transition movement offered a platform with compatible values that would give us the support we needed to promote, fund and increase the number of projects that promote climate resiliency and build partnerships with our neighbours.
We applied for funding for our first project – creating wildflower mini-meadows – got to work, and the rest is history (or will be!).
We have grown organically since 2020, through pop-up projects and online meetings to take us through COVID-19. We welcome involvement from anyone and everyone who is interested in meeting the challenges we will soon face because of peak oil and global warming – or who just enjoys working together with others in the community to bring forward a positive vision for the future.
We have now been awarded another block of funding to help us ‘Get Physical’ in 2023. We’ll use this to run a series of free, in-person events that we hope will excite our community around sustainability and grow the size of our group to give us a firm basis for future work.
This funding comes from the National Lottery Community Fund, distributed by Transition Together.
Thanks to National Lottery players for making this possible. Look for more information about Transition Together at https://transitiontogether.org.uk/
