Rob Hopkins: Transition Towns Movement

RobHopkins, Transition Towns Movement

Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition Network, talks about an international movement of community-led response to climate change, resource depletion and fossil fuels.  Embraced by communities in  34 countries, including 130 (so far) in the US, the Transition model provides a sustainable  blueprint for communities learning to grow their own food, generate their own power, build their own homes with local materials and develop their own local economy through resilience to a changing habitat.  Rob spoke to Tidings via Skype from his home in Totnes, Devon, the very first Transition town.  Learn how your community can become part of the transition! (Tidings is produced by Tony Ernst and heard on WPKN on the second Wednesday of each month.)

P.S.  Rob just posted an end-of-year round-up of happenings at Transition towns all over the world  I really liked this video from Rumania and their take on Black Friday.
