Description

Working together to make our community stronger, happier and more resilient as we deal with the impacts of peak oil and climate change.

The Kyneton Transition Hub grew from a small group of people at the Kyneton Conference in 2010 who wanted to work towards a “greener” Kyneton.

As a new group, we decided it was important to be clear about what we value most and what we are wanting to create. For this reason we developed a statement of our vision and values to form the basis of our decision-making. The key elements follow below.

We are working together to make our community stronger, happier and more resilient as we deal with the impacts of peak oil and climate change.

We the residents of Kyneton environs care about our community, our local environment and our world. Our strengths are our diverse skills, interests and experiences as well as our friendliness and sense of community. We support a sustainable future for our community, our children and our earth. We value the contribution of each individual to our community, whatever age, ability, family status, or origin.

Kyneton Transition Hub and the MRSG

The Kyneton Transition Hub has always had a strong affiliation with the Macedon Ranges Sustainability Group (MRSG), and is now one of their action groups.

There is no membership requirement for the KTH, however, if you wish to support the sustainability efforts in our area we would recommend you join the MRSG, as through this support we can work more effectively together.

For more information on the MRSG click here.

Our regular events may include Info Sessions, Garden Gatherings and the Community Produce Swap Table at the Kyneton Farmers’ Market. We also participate in other community events and network with community groups and individuals. We have been involved in the Kyneton Daffodil & Arts Festival, the Kyneton Agricultural Show, the Malmsbury Fayre and Macedon Ranges Sustainable Living Festival.

We are very happy to meet you at these events to exchange ideas on peak oil, climate change, building community, sustainable living and related issues.

If you would like to find out more about what we do or have some ideas for new initiatives, we would love to meet you over a coffee at 10.30 am Friday mornings at Hamster Cafe (5 High St, Kyneton).

Working Groups:

If you have a particular interest in gardening, food, transport, renewable energy, the arts, or any other aspect related to developing community strength, then we would love to hear from you.

Of course, we know we are not working alone on these issues as we already have a strong community as well as many businesses and community groups working toward the same ends. So if you would like to talk to us about your role in business or community we would appreciate your experience, wisdom and advice.

Our key working group interest is in the area of sustainable food and food production.
