Transition Handbook outline

Transition Handbook outline | DIY & "The Great Reskilling" | Scoop.it

Introduction: Tantalizing glimpses of resilience

1. Resilience refers to the ability of a system to hold together and maintain its functions in the face of change and shocks from outside. The book argues that building local resilience is key. A resilient culture thrives by living within its limits, and can function indefinitely.
2. The Achilles heel of economic globalization is its degree of oil dependency. Moving away from oil dependency, toward more localized energy-efficient and productive living arrangements, is inevitable.
3. Our culture is underpinned with cultural myths, misleading and harmful stories, which we must replace.The book favors generating a "sense of elation, rather than the guilt, anger and horror that most campaigning involves."
4The book advocates a "sense of anticipation, elation and a collective call to adventure … positive engagement and new storytelling … [exploring] the possibilities of applied optimism …" It offers a vision of "an extraordinary renaissance—economic, cultural and spiritual … making a nourishing and abundant future a reality."

The Social Revolution has begun | Chris Boyer

The Social Revolution has begun | Chris Boyer | DIY & "The Great Reskilling" | Scoop.it

It actually started a few years ago with the formation of the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media. I remember the conversations I had with my friend, Lee Aase, at the time. His vision was exciting: creating an organization comprised of patients, doctors, hospitals and healthcare providers all focused on developing best practices in the use and application of social media in healthcare. When he asked me to be an external advisory board member, I eagerly jumped at the chance.
