Ealing Transition has been active in the local community over the past 12 years, raising awareness and understanding of climate concerns through organising over 60 public meetings, talks, films and Open Space Community Planning events. Our view is that by taking action, where we are, within our local neighbourhood, we can empower ourselves and influence others around us to act and press for effective action against climate disruption. We have helped initiate and support a number of practical projects locally which are contributing to reducing climate disruption and restoring natural systems. Over the past 2 years we have drawn on community contributions at our events to articulate plans for local climate action. We have actively participated with the Council in developing local Climate Action and Biodiversity Restoration Plans and continue to press for their full implementation.
