Transition Culture

An Evolving Exploration into the Head, Heart and Hands of Energy Descent

Transition Culture has moved

I no longer blog on this site. You can now find me, my general blogs, and the work I am doing researching my forthcoming book on imagination, on my new blog.

Putting Transition Culture to Bed for Christmas

tortoiseTransition Culture now gets lovingly picked up, wrapped in bits of cloth and old newspapers and put into a snuggly little box in the cupboard under the stairs in order to hibernate peacefully for a couple of weeks while I do family Christmas things and New Year things and generally take a break.  Normal service (whatever that is) will be resumed on Monday January 4th.  Have a great break yourselves, and thanks for your company here over the last year.

Hi, Rob,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I’ve learned a lot from your blog.
It is time to say ‘thank you’ for the last a few months and the interview in Totnes on Sept. 24th in Transition office.
Will keep following your updates and introduce it to other friends as well.
Have a wonderful holiday!!!

Have a wonderful Christmas. Thank you for your blog. I really enjoy iot and am inspired by it. It’s refreshing to read something positve rather than the doom and gloom of the news.

Merry Christmas Rob and to all in the Transition movement. Completed my reading of “The Transition Handbook” a couple of weeks ago and have now turned to read “Permaculture”. It’s fascinating, inspirational and way forward to a sustainable future. Learning much from this web site, reading everyone’s comments.

Happy Holidays!

I agree that the films featured are indeed pithy and inspiring with an individual quirkiness as well as some shared themes that collapse the global/local divide.

Beyong the youtube homevideo craze there is a growing field of community or participation-led video production which involves creativity and critique (dialogue)- ‘our’tube

We have been trying to faeture some of these in our international community film festival
