Join an Online Conversation with Transition Co-Founder Rob Hopkins

Posted By admin On July 13, 2011 @ 9:30 am In Simple Living | Comments Disabled

Join Rob Hopkins for a conversation on Monday, July 18th. Rob needs no introduction, but if you are new to the concept of ‘Transition,’ then this is a great opportunity to learn from the source of this important movement to build community resilience in the face of major societal challenges confronting usfrom climate change and shrinking supplies of affordable, clean energy. Rob is the author of The Transition Handbook [1] and co-founder of the Transition Network. Join us for this special event!

 

Monday, July 18,  - 11:00am - 12:15pm EST

Please register online [2], and mark your calendar.

 

Rob Hopkins is the originator of the Transition concept and co-founder of the Transition Network. He spent many years teaching permaculture and cob building, mostly when living in Ireland. 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 [3], is author of the ‘Transition Handbook’ and generally spends far too much time thinking about Transition stuff. He is also a Trustee of the Soil Association, the UK organization campaigning for planet-friendly food and farming.

 

We’re delighted that Richard Heinberg [4], author and Senior Fellow-in-Residence at Post Carbon Institute [5], will be hosting this call.

Most of us avoid thinking about what happens when oil runs out (or becomes prohibitively expensive), but The Transition Handbook [7] 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 [8] – is coming out soon and available for preorder.
