Fleeing Vesuvius - New Zealand Edition

Fleeing Vesuvius - New Zealand Edition | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

Since psychological, institutional and cultural factors influence our behaviour, Fleeing Vesuvius also considers the changes required in the way we think, how we use the land and how we relate to others if we are to reduce the risk of environmental and social breakdown posed by the current crisis.

The book's overall aim is to arm its readers with the knowledge they need to develop new ways of doing things instead of staggering from crisis to crisis trying to patch up systems that are only suited to economies that can grow and grow.

The End of Growth | Richard Heinberg

The End of Growth | Richard Heinberg | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

ON SALE NOW! Richard Heinberg’s latest landmark work goes to the heart of the ongoing financial crisis, explaining how and why it occurred, and what we must do to avert the worst potential outcomes. Written in an engaging, highly readable style, The End of Growth describes what policymakers, communities, and families can do to build a new economy that operates within Earth’s budget of energy and resources. We can thrive during the transition if we set goals that promote human and environmental well-being, rather than continuing to pursue the now-unattainable prize of ever-expanding GDP.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s foreword to ‘The Transition Companion’ » Transition Culture | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

“Observing the growth of the Transition movement over the past five years has been inspiring in so many ways. While governments and big business struggle (to put it politely) to tackle the enormous environmental issues that face us, this movement has forged ahead with its collective bid to find a creative, passionate response to the question ‘where do we go from here?’"

A tale of two book launches and announcing today’s virtual Twitter one! » Transition Culture

A tale of two book launches and announcing today’s virtual Twitter one! » Transition Culture | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

There have now been two launches of The Transition Companion. The first took place on October 5th in Totnes Civic Hall, and the second was yesterday, on the roof of Food from the Sky in Crouch End, an amazing urban agriculture project in London. Today sees a third, our Twitter book launch! The idea is that from 2pm – 5pm today, I will be on Twitter (@robintransition), answering any questions you might have about the book, responding to any requests for signed copies, and generally tweeting about ‘The Transition Companion’ to anyone who takes an interest. The hashtag is #ttcomp.
