Who we are?

We are an independent, community-focussed and owned organisation, affiliated to the worldwide Transition movement.  

The group is open to anyone who shares our determination to take positive local community-based action to tackle the issues of climate change and peak oil.

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.  Click here to download Transition Black Isle's constitution.

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.

Company Registered in Scotland, No.398650.

Scottish charity number is SC042309.

Registered office:  Glachbeg, Allanglach Wood, North Kessock, IV1 3XD.
