Sustaining Dunbar is part of the Transition Network as well as being a Community Development Trust for the Dunbar and East Linton ward of East Lothian. Its purpose is to bring people together to plan and start creating a low carbon, locally resilient future for our community. Set up in 2007 we became a charitable company limited by guarantee with a board of directors elected from the membership in November 2008. Membership is open to anyone resident and eligible to vote in the Dunbar and East Linton ward.
We have run a wide range of projects and activities over recent years. Currently we are mainly focussed on enabling local people to take ownership of and gain access to our local waste as a resource. We are developing a reuse and repair enterprise and Waste Innovation Centre as one legacy from our Zero Waste Town project -see more information of our website.
