Transition Town MK – Local action for low carbon communities
Transition Town Milton Keynes is a group of local people who aim to promote practical local action which will help the people of Milton Keynes to be more environmentally sustainable and self sufficient in their lifestyle.

Planting UP
The “Planting Up” community garden project was formed by a few passionate people from Westbury Arts Centre and Transition Town Milton Keynes (MK) in summer 2017.

The aim is to establish a community garden at Westbury Arts Centre that uses permaculture principles to improve the Arts Centre’s outdoor space so that it better serves the local community and the natural environment.

Our project group consists of people from all walks of life who are the driving force of our project. It’s our volunteer’s dedicated time and effort that is enabling us to create,​
maintain and promote our fantastic, new community space. We’ve already seen how a bit of elbow-grease can transform our plot. When we couple this enthusiasm with
even more community-spirit, we’ll be well on our way to Planting Up and turning the grassy pasture at the entrance of Westbury Arts Centre into a productive, permaculture paradise.

SolarAid is an international charity, founded in 2006 to combat poverty and climate change. We provide access to solar lights in Uganda, Malawi and Zambia to help catalyse solar markets
and eradicate the kerosene lamp.

598 million people in Africa alone have no access to electricity.
Without electricity families have no clean source of light, leaving millions to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives.
With a solar light, everything changes. These little lamps are safe, clean and affordable. They give off hours of light in the evening so families can earn, learn and feel safe after dark. Just one lamp can transform the fortunes of an entire family and is the first step on an energy ladder to full electrification.

Swan Credit Union
Swan Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. We exist for the benefit of present and future members who live and/or work in Milton Keynes, North Buckinghamshire or South Oxfordshire.Our mission is to provide caring, community banking, offering safe savings and ethical loans.
