More a party than a protest!

FANCY living in a stronger, happier place? Making new friends? Getting creative to help build a Black Isle fit for the future?

Crippled economies, chaotic weather, dwindling resources - the news today can be depressing, if not downright terrifying.

But times of change are times of renewal, and transformation can be steered in a healthy, sane direction. Instead of hurtling frantically towards consumerist oblivion we can slow down and take positive, practical steps towards a building a thriving Black Isle and world.

Across the globe people are getting involved in Transition - taking local action that's 'more a party than a protest.' Find out more, check out our newsletter and join us now.
