GreenTEA is about helping people to make the transition to a more sustainable lifestyle, one which is less dependent on burning fossil fuels. The emphasis is on grassroots action and building a more resilient community, enabling us to live within the planet’s resources. We can offer advice and support on lowering your carbon footprint by looking at the key areas outlined in the tabs above. We work with residents across the Eynsham, Aston, Cassington, Farmoor, Freeland, Long Hanborough, Standlake, and Stanton Harcourt areas. For more information on the Transition movement, please scroll down.
We are also working with Catriona Bass and Kevan Martin to look at ideas for how to promote nature recovery around Eynsham.

Green TEA is part of the Transition Initiative, a grassroots movement to help everyone in the community to cope with the transition from a global, fossil-fuel based, polluting and vulnerable economy, to a more sustainable lifestyle based on clean, renewable energy and local produce.
This recent video from Jeremy Leggett (provided by Solarplaza) is a fascinating account of the current global energy transition as presented at a recent conference. The talk focuses on
• Driving Forces: fast trends in clean and smart energy technologies
• Amplification of policymakers, corporations and communities in multiple countries to the above
• Rise of artificial intelligence and robotics
• Challenge that solar companies and their investors are facing to keep up with these crucial developments
