Sustainable Streatham was launched at the Streatham premier of “The Age of Stupid” at theStreatham Business Centre on the 5th of July 2009. Prior to the film, Jonathan Leake, the Environment and Science correspondent for the Sunday Times, spoke on the nature of the climate change threat and emphasised the specific effects this could have on Streatham in particular. After the film a lively discussion was held on things we as individuals can do to combat climate change themselves. It was in this context that Sustainable Streatham began, providing a central place where those who care can come and discuss action, plan individual, or group, action and spread the news, the know-how and the passion for change to others.
In the Spring of 2011, it was agreed by members attedning an Open Space Meeting that Sustainble Streatham should become a "transition initiative", and from then on we became Transition Streatham
Transition Streatham hopes to promote sustainable living and to encourage discussion and action on issues as wide ranging as environmental awareness and education, energy saving, recycling and waste management, food growing, composting and transport amongst others. For more information:
