Rob Hopkins about the emergence of the Transition Movement

Rob Hopkins is one of the founders of the Transition Network ­­­­­that emerged from the Transition Town Initiative in Totnes in the mid 2000s. Rob has written several books about how local communities can build resilience and more sustainable life forms by localizing the economy and making use of the skills and ability that exist within the community itself. I met Rob in 2018 at Schumacher collage just outside Totnes. During our conversation we talked about how the Transition Network originally emerged and spread across the world. We also discussed the challenges that arise when people from diverse backgrounds come together to change their behaviours and practices. Editing: Tommi Ranta
