Pocket Neighborhoods: Small-Scale Living in a Large-Scale World

From Whidbey Island, Washington, to Winnsboro, Texas, pocket neighborhoods are taking root in communities in search of a simpler, more shareable way of life. In a pocket neighborhood, houses with a smaller-than-normal footprint surround a shared green space. The more public areas of the homes -- living room, dining room, and kitchen -- face the commons, with the bedrooms situated away from public views. The design is both community-oriented and environmentally friendly.

Film review: Why ‘Thrive’ is best avoided

Film review: Why ‘Thrive’ is best avoided | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

by Rob Hopkins

What do you do when you are the heir to the Proctor and Gamble fortune and you have spent years surrounding yourself with new agey thinking and conspiracy theories? You make a film like ‘Thrive‘, the latest conspiracy theory movie that is popping up all over the place.

"Ah, now we get into the real agenda of the film, a kind of New Age libertarianism, a sort of cosmic Tea Party, and it all starts to get deeply alarming."

Shareable: Fixing the Future, a Documentary About Building New Economies [VIDEO] | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

The documentary aims to document "people are working to fix the economy in a new way—and it's happening on Main Street, not Wall Street...a new way to do business, a new way to make money, a new way to share, and a new way to work." Many of the ideas featured will be familiar to Shareable readers, such as relationship economies, cooperatives, and time banks. But there are also a number of projects featured that may be new to longtime watchers of the new sharing economy.

Why Own When You Can Share?

Why Own When You Can Share? | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

While more Americans are eager to escape cluttered lives filled with too much expensive stuff, new technologies are making it easier than ever to share. Rachel Botsman, social innovator and author of What's Mine is Yours: the Rise of Collaborative Consumption, says that the result will be a massive shift in the way we think about ownership: while the 20th century was defined by hyper-consumption, the 21st will be defined by collaborative consumption.

Guerrilla Grafters: Splicing Fruit-Bearing Branches Onto City Trees

Guerrilla Grafters: Splicing Fruit-Bearing Branches Onto City Trees | Transition Culture | Scoop.it
In San Francisco, a new form of covert agriculture is taking root: making fruit trees out of trees that normally don't bear fruit, and turning an entire city into an orchard.

Money, as we all know, doesn’t grow on trees. Food, on the other hand, does. So with the economy dragging, why not turn public trees into a source of free fruit?

‘A Story of Transition in 10 Objects’ all gathered together in one place

‘A Story of Transition in 10 Objects’ all gathered together in one place | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

As part of the promotion of ‘The Transition Companion‘, Emilio Mula made these 10 short films of different stories from the book. The recent BBC series ‘A History of the World in 100 Objects’ beautifully told the story of the evolution of human history illustrated by 100 objects chosen from the British Museum’s collection. We used a similar approach to tell the story of the emerging and unfolding Transition movement, which in its short life has spread to 35 countries around the world from its humble beginnings in Kinsale, Ireland.
