Now based in the UK town of Totnes, he is a member of Transition Town Totnes, works part time for Transition Network, publishes¬†www.transitionculture.org, is author of the ‘Transition Handbook’ and generally spends far too much time thinking about Transition stuff.

|Most of us avoid thinking about what happens when oil runs out (or becomes prohibitively expensive), but¬†The Transition Handbook¬†shows how the inevitable and profound changes ahead can have a positive outcome.These changes can lead to the rebirth of local communities¬†that will grow more of their own food, generate their own power, and build their own houses using local materials.¬†If your town is not a transition town, this upbeat guide offers you the tools for starting the process.|
Rob’s¬†newest¬†book ¬†–¬†The Transition Companion: Making Your Community More Resilient in Uncertain Times¬†– is coming out soon and available¬†for preorder.
