Why is this so important?

Sharing skills and knowledge is key to the Transition movement, which is aimed at localising economy. To build a more resilient community in the face of climate change, we need to address the fact that we have lost, or never learnt, many of the skills that such a shift would require.

We support this through practical skillshares, from hedge laying to quilting; our annual Bioblitz, to teach about the biodiversity in St Andrews; and Living Labs which links research with practice.
