Trawsnewid Llandrindod Transition is a non-profit organisation set up by local volunteers to raise awareness of the issues associated with the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change and the consequent need to develop a low carbon, sustainable future for Llandrindod and its surrounding area through: community action.
The main aims of the group include:
- To create and help implement an Energy Descent Action Plan (EDAP) for Llandrindod Wells and surrounding area (here's an example, based on Totnes in Devon);
- To support and encourage community action to increase Llandrindod’s resilience to peak oil and climate change;
- To support and work with other Transition groups and similar community-led initiatives.
The group is open to any member of the community who has interest in these and other similar issues and would like to support a community-led initiative to tackle the challenges ahead.
Llandrindod Transition has various sub-groups; these include:
How can we grow more of our own food, reduce reliance on food from far away and ensure that our local food suppliers prosper and produce healthy food for local people?
How can Llandrindod become more self-sufficient in energy and reduce the amount of energy it uses?
How can we reduce our dependence on the car as a mode of transport?
Using an interactive mapping tool to plot and share information about Llandrindod’s sustainable resources and sites of interest. (See www.opengreenmap.org/greenmap/green-llandrindod).
