Transition Southampton believes in a positive, sustainable, community imagined future. We work with local communities, organisations and local governments to create positive, sustainable, community-based solutions that tackle climate change and energy scarcity. We are part of the international Transition Network, and have a range of active and past projects across food, energy, waste, transport and the built environment.

Our Projects

We’ve run various projects and events over the years from Repair Cafes to Open Homes Weekends and Composting projects. Check out the full list here and get in touch if there’s an idea you would like support with.

Repair Cafe and Bike Repairs

Our Repair Cafes are currently on hold due to Covid. Our Bike Repair sessions are running outdoors as and when we’re able to hold them. These free sessions run most often at St Denys Community Centre near the bike stands. For more information please get in touch. Booking is not necessary but you can register your attendance on our Facebook page, which will help us assess demand. Our Bike KItchen mechanics will also be running free bike doctors outside The Hub Cycleworks, Shirley Rd. See their site for more details.
