Welcome to the Porter Valley Transition Site
This site is for people in the Porter Valley who want to get a local Transition group going. We are currently doing lots of stuff in the S10/S11/Porter Valley area of Sheffield - from growing more fruit and vegetables locally, to awareness raising of the problems with relying on fossil fuels, and getting to know lots of people from all different backgrounds and interests who live in this area. This is a very new group, and we would love to hear from you!

What is 'Transition Porter Valley' exactly?
First of all, Transition Porter Valley does not come from any organisation, political party, or belief system. It's for anyone living in the S10/S11/Porter Valley area.
'Transition' is all about local people finding creative, practical, positive solutions to the problems caused by our current complete reliance on fossil fuels (oil, coal, and gas).
As well as being by far the biggest cause of climate change, fossil fuels are running out very fast as we all consume more and more energy. Our local, national and global economy is going to have to adapt quickly to these new realities.
A 'transition' approach uses the diverse skills and abilities of everyone in the community to make the changes we need in order to meet these challenges - both now and in the future.
To see a great example of how Transition can work, see the website of 'Transition Town Totnes'
