The Transition Movement
The Transition Towns movement was started by Rob Hopkins when he wrote the Transition Handbook in 2008. The Transition movement has grown from just two groups in 2006 (Kinsale, Ireland and Totnes, England) to over 1,107 initiatives in more than 43 countries across the world in 2013.
Rob Hopkins, the co-founder of the Transition Towns movement, argues for a new approach to energy, society and our surroundings. Listen to Radio 4 Talk.
He is the author of the Transition Handbook – “A Transition Guide from Oil Dependency to Local Resilience”
