In transition: Rob Hopkins

| collaborative consumption, environment, sharing, sustainability | November 16, 2011

Last night I went to Transition Norwich’s third birthday celebration to hear Rob Hopkins of the Transition Network speak.  He’s a very good speaker and the messages were clear:

  • Sustainability makes sense, however you look at the future
  • Work towards sustainabiity and resilience improves
  • The route to sustainability is different for each community
  • The best way to work out how to make it work is to try things out and find out what works for your community
  • There are many aspects to sustainability: reducing energy use, local food, local currencies, community building, developing skills, co-housing

Rob Hopkins has written several books about transition towns and how to start, the latest is The Transition Companion: Making Your Community More Resilient in Uncertain Times .  I’m waiting for my copy to arrive, I’ll review it here in a week or two.
