"The Transition concept is one of the big ideas of our time. Peak oil and climate change can so often leave one feeling depressed and disempowered. What I love about the Transition approach is that it is inspirational, harnessing hope instead of guilt, and optimism instead of fear. The Transition Handbook will come to be seen as one of the seminal books which emerged at the end of the Oil Age and which offered a gentle helping hand in the transition to a more local, more human and ultimately more nourishing future."The Transition Movement is a dynamic community movement which is spreading like wildfire. Communities are mobilising to improve their resilience in the face of the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change, by developing local food networks, local energy supplies, local transport – even local money.
