Transition Black Isle is part of the worldwide Transition movement, and we see our role as helping Black Isle communities thrive in the face of climate change and disruption to global resources.  Our activities include encouraging non-car travel, promoting energy saving measures, running community markets, supporting local food producers as well as helping people to grow more of their own food and to make their own compost.

As a partner in the Highland Community Waste Partnership, TBI is actively working with the community to reduce waste and consumption and increase reuse, repair and recycling.

Black Isle Repair Cafe 

The monthly Black Isle Repair Café roams the community spaces of the Black Isle with the aim of making repair and reuse more accessible to residents.
 

Food and Growing

TBI has produced a comprehensive Growing Guide (still available) for the north of Scotland, run several series of 'Grow North' workshops on a range of growing topics, and a very popular seed potato sale in early March.

Climate change

We provide  information about the serious threat posed by climate change and the need to drastically reduce carbon emissions caused by our burning of fossil fuels.  We report on governments' climate change plans, on activists' climate protests and on 'Green New Deal' proposals for a more sustainable world.

Black Isle Larder

The Black Isle Larder website replaces an earlier 'Your Local Larder' booklet which had become out of date.  It provides up to date information both to local people and visitors about Black Isle producers and suppliers offering food and drink largely sourced here.  

Travel and Tourism

TBI's Million Miles project reduced car use significantly, and we continue to encourage public transport and cycling, with an associated bike hire business and publication of an Active Travel map and guides to Black Isle cycle routes.

Plastics and waste

With pollution from single-use plastics a top cause of environmental concern, a group has been set up within TBI to exchange ideas and information on the issue and ultimately to change the attitudes and actions of people and businesses on the Black Isle.


Antonio Guterres address on World Environment Day

 

“It’s climate crunch time” when it comes to tackling rising carbon emissions, the UN Secretary-General said on Wednesday, stressing that while the need for global action is unprecedented, so too are the opportunities for prosperity and sustainable development.

Guterres insisted that the 1.5C target was “still just about possible” but said there needed to be far greater effort from countries to slash carbon emissions, to boost climate finance to poorer countries, and for the fossil-fuel industry to be made pariahs by governments, the media and other businesses for its role in causing the climate crisis.
