Transition Town MK

Transition Town MK

Transition Town Milton Keynes is a group of local people concerned about the urgent need to address the climate and ecological crises.

We are working together to improve the resilience of communities in Milton Keynes. We do this through practical actions that advocate for a low carbon lifestyle and social and economic justice.


Transition Town MK monthly social evening

Wed 1st February 2023, 7pm – 8.15pm

Doors open at 6.45pm for a prompt 7pm start, and we aim to finish by 8pm for drinks before close.

This month’s guest speakers will be Jane Grindey and Marie Osborne, founding members and Directors of Wolverton Community Energy.

Hear from them about some of their exciting projects – old and new – transforming the energy efficiency of homes, businesses, and the wider community around Milton Keynes.

This interesting topic promises some valuable insights into how community energy is helping some of our local communities to cut energy costs, reduce carbon, and improve local economy resilience.

 Bring your questions because the discussion will be led by wherever the audience Q&A takes us!

If you’ve ever wondered what you can do to make a difference in response to the climate crisis, or where you can possibly start in your own life, this is the social event for you!

Our socials are held on the first Wednesday of every month. Please come along to find out more about the Transition Movement, to tell us what your concerns are, and discover how we can make a difference together. 

As always, our event will be held at AIIMI Ltd, 100 Avebury Boulevard, Central Milton Keynes, MK9 1FH and there will be tea, coffee and cake.  Please ensure that you register, so that Reception know where to direct you.


Thanks to Aiimi for lending us their locale.
