Totnes has a worldwide reputation as one of the founder towns of the global Transition Network. Transition Town Totnes (TTT) is a dynamic, community-led and run charity that exists to strengthen the local economy and build resilience for a future with less cheap energy, financial uncertainty and a changing climate.
