Transition Towns: Local experiment or global solution with Rob Hopkins
Rob Hopkins, author of From What is to What if and founder of The Transition Town Network explains to Old Fox Young Fox how communities around the world are coming together to make a difference.
We discuss his book From What is to What if and the premise that drives it and how he found himself moving from teaching Permaculture to founding a global movement now spanning over 1,200 towns.
This is inspiring stuff and speaks deeply firstly to the dire global situation we find ourselves in and importantly acts as a call to arms for us all to feel empowered to do something about it. Because together, we can just get more done.
