The transition handbook : from oil dependency to local resilience by Rob Hopkins( Book )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live in an oil-dependent world, and have got to this level of dependency in a very short space of time, using vast reserves of oil in the process - without thinking ahead to plan for when the supply is not so plentiful. Most of us avoid thinking about what happens when oil runs out (or becomes prohibitively expensive), but The Transition Handbook shows how the inevitable and profound changes ahead can have a positive outcome. These changes can lead to the rebirth of local communities, which will grow more of their own food, generate their own power, and build their own houses using local materials. They can also encourage the development of local currencies, keeping money in the local area." "There are now over 35 formal Transition Initiatives in the UK, including towns, cities, islands, villages and peninsulas, with over 500 globally at the earlier stages of launching this process. With little proactivity at government level, communities are taking matters into their own hands and acting locally. Within peak oil and climate change is the potential for the greatest economic, social and cultural renaissance we have ever seen. If your community has not yet become a Transition Initiative, this guide offers you the tools to get started."--Jacket
The power of just doing stuff : how local action can change the world by Rob Hopkins( )

28 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Power of Just Doing Stuff argues that this shift towards cooperation represents the seeds of a new economy. If we have to deal with austerity, it is better to see it as a force for good and make using fewer resources more effective. But how do you connect and work together, for the benefit of all, and not for individual profit? In the UK and Europe, people are already sharing their entrepreneurship and creativity. And it works. This book shows you how more groups can come together in the future" -- Publisher description
The transition companion : making your community more resilient in uncertain times by Rob Hopkins( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to answer the question:"What would it look like if the best responses to peak oil and climate change came not from committees and Acts of Parliament, but from you and me, and the people around us?"For the firstTransition Handbook, published in 2008, this was pretty much a speculative question, but with this new book we are able to draw from what has, in effect, been a four-year worldwide experiment, and attempt to try to put the Transition idea into practice. This book is a move away from The Twelve Steps of Transition that underpinned the work of Transition initiatives up to this point toward a more holistic, more appropriate model. It imagines the work involved in transforming the place you live from its current highly vulnerable, unresilient, oil-dependent state to a resilient, more localized, diverse, and nourishing place, as a journey. With this book, the author has created a highly useful companion on the journey toward community resilience. It is rich with stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things, of tried and tested tools, and offers many of the ingredients you may find you need to create this process where you live. The way it has been created embodies this sense of collaboration and creativity. Each of the tools and ingredients was written in draft and posted to the author's blog, TransitionCulture.org, as well as on the Transition Network's site. Comments and feedback were invited. Transition initiatives around the world were invited to send in their stories and photos, which abound in this book

The economics of happiness by Helena Norberg-Hodge( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary film about economic localization, a powerful strategy that can help heal our world from crisis -- our ecosystems, our societies, and ourselves. "The Economic of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. As governments and big business continue to push for 'growth' in the form of increased global trade, we're seeing an increase in climate chaos, senseless war, fundamentalism, financial volatility, income inequality, and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, people around the world are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of both trade and finance. And, far from the old institutions of power, communities are coming together to re-build more human-scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm -- an economics of localization."--Container

The book provides accounts of how individuals have responded with their local communities to the twin threats of Peak Oil and Climate Change. This practical book explains how we can transition from fossil-fuel based communities to ones that are more self-reliant and generate less carbon emissions. It shows how such changes will result in a greater development of local food, local economies, local water harvesting and energy generation and so create more sustainable communities in the longer term. It includes detailed accounts of Transition initiatives in the UK (where they now number more than 100) and profiles of Australian and New Zealand initiatives currently underway. This inspiring guide shows the necessary steps to establishing a transition town in a local area and provides an achievable model for people who would like to transform the life of their community
