James Samuel and Richard Heinberg on Transition New Zealand.
I wrote the other day about the rapid spread of the Transition concept in New Zealand, and it still continues apace. There are now 34 ‘Mullers’ in the country, which have been springing up in the wake of a tour of the country by Richard Heinberg. Now on YouTube you can see James Samuel, one of the key drivers behind the emerging movement there, giving a workshop with Richard Heinberg at the EcoShow in Taupo.
Part One is James’s overview of the Transition concept and how it might translate to New Zealand. It is fascinating to see how the Transition concept is communicated in different places and in different contexts, and also to see how people are making use of the wonderful thing that is YouTube to communicate their work and their ideas.
Part Two is Richard Heinberg telling the story of the Transition movement from his perspective. This is a fascinating overview of his thinking on it, and how much he has been affected by it.
Part Three is the last bit of Richard’s presentation, and goes back to James again.
Part Four is the group feedback and questions session…
The last part, Part Five, features more reflection and discussion by those attending…
