More about us...
Transition Black Isle was set up by a group of like-minded people at a public meeting in February 2009. It has grown rapidly, and in 2011 it became a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity.
The group was founded on the issues of climate change and peak oil, but its activities are concerned with making the community more resilient, so that it can prosper whatever the price of energy and food, and irrespective of turmoil in global financial markets.

Transition Black Isle is one of about 200 "official" Transition groups in the UK. There is a similar number overseas and hundreds more are following the same agenda without formally joining the movement.
We have received substantial project funding from the Climate Challenge Fund, a Scottish Government initiative which aims to help communities make substantial cuts in their greenhouse gas emissions, and from The Highland Council and Highlands & Islands Enterprise.
We are also grateful for sponsorship and donations from a range of local businesses, from our members and from the wider public.
