Enabling positive change

Sustainable Chesham aims to encourage and enable our community to work towards a more sustainable future.

Run by local Chesham residents, we meet monthly, to discuss, promote and support local sustainable initiatives. Everyone is welcome to join us and get involved.
Together we can find positive and creative ways to raise awareness, address the challenges of climate change and create a more sustainable town.
We would love you to join in, come along to an event, tell us your ideas and help bring about change in our community.

See our News and Events page for details of the next monthly meeting (on Zoom).

What do we do?

Success stories, hopes and dreams

Sustainable Chesham is part of the Transition Towns Network and is community-led and volunteer-operated.
Projects are developed by members of the community coming together to make them happen, with support for communications, strategic representation and fundraising from the Sustainable Chesham core team.
We are a dynamic umbrella organisation with interest groups including ENERGY, WATER, BIODIVERSITY, TRANSPORT, FOOD AND WASTE with local projects often originating from these key themes.

Successes

Our successes include setting up and running the monthly Chesham Local Produce Market and creating the Community Orchard.
In the past we have also held regular Green Drinks and popular film nights.

Hopes and dreams

We have ideas for lots of new projects including a Repair Café, a Collective Community Energy switch and tree and hedge planting. We always welcome new ideas!

Sharing knowledge

We are partnered with Chesham Town Council and we are helping them to set and achieve their Climate Emergency goals.
