The Transition Network

Rob Hopkins, in the video above, is the co-founder of The Transition Town movement and has just published a short book,  The Power of Just Doing Stuff,  with stories about how people are developing a more resilient economy, inspired by his movement and as a response to the twin threats of climate change and peak oil.

From an article over at the Guardian:

"But when there are thousands of communities worldwide all weaving their bit in a larger tapestry," Hopkins says, "it adds up to something awe-inspiring and strong."

What he is arguing is that sweeping changes in history are made not only by "big" people doing big things but by groups of "ordinary" people doing smaller things together. And that it's a mistake to overlook those small steps."

They also have a chapter near me...... oooh.
