We are a group of local people who, as part of a growing "Transition" network made up of towns and cities all over the world, are exploring how we can increase our community's ability to withstand the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change. Our activities are all aimed at making the market town of Belper a more sustainable place for us all to live, work and play, and at the same time reducing our impact on the planet and our individual and community carbon footprint.

Transition Belper is made up of people from all ages and backgrounds. It is not a political group, or a campaigning group. What brings us together is a shared desire for action for the benefit of our local community and our planet.

So instead of worrying about the future of the planet, join us!

A Plastic Ocean

Transition Belper and St Peter's Church
are hosting a showing of the award winning film
A Plastic Ocean
about the impact of plastic on our oceans.

Friday September 21st in St Peter's Church, Chesterfield Road, Belper.
Doors open at 19.00 for refreshments with the film starting at 19.30.
The film is 102 minutes long.
This is a free event however donations towards the costs would be very welcome.

This is what the plastic Ocean Foundation has to say about our use of plastic:-
Every year we are producing more than 300 million tons of plastic, half of this is designed for single use, and each year around 8 million tons of it ends up in our oceans. Plastic Oceans is working to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society’s perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as ‘disposable’.
Described by Sir David Attenborough as “one of the most important films of our time", A Plastic Ocean is a documentary that shows the crisis facing our ocean from our disposable lifestyle. An international team of adventurers, researchers, and ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine ocean. It brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle and shows never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health.

Become A Member

Transition Belper membership is annual and runs from 1st January. The cost is a mere £5 which all helps to pay for meeting rooms, insurance and accounting costs. For legal purposes it also distinguishes between members and supporters - this has relevance when it comes to voting and electing trustees. There are occasional benefits such as free copies of the Transition Free Press but the greatest benefit of membership is the satisfaction of giving financial support to our activities.
