Launching a new book

21 Stories of Transition: How a movement of communities is coming together to reimagine and rebuild our world’ (harvested by Rob Hopkins) launched at the COP21 climate negotiations in Paris.  It’s a joyous and inspiring celebration of what the Transition movement has become.  The design of the 100-page book (in both English and French) was driven by images submitted by the 21 Transition groups… it’s very visual, more like a magazine, and was really fun to design.  Great to see it squeeze into Shareable‘s ‘Top 22 New Books for Winter’ list.  Read Lucy Neal’s review and buy it for £10 incl. p&p here.

Experimenting with community resiliency… and selling t-shirts

This year’s Transition Network International Conference brought 350 people from 35 countries to Devon to discuss the many ways that resilient and active communities make a real difference in creating new solutions to food, energy, housing, livelihood and relational needs.  T-shirts were a new addition this year, and the message seemed to hit the spot.  I asked those who generously bought one to send me photos of themselves wearing it… here’s Rob Hopkins and Pete Lipman sporting theirs.
