Books Info:

The Power of Just Doing Stuff free pdf 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.

About Rob Hopkins

Rob Hopkins is the co-founder of Transition Town Totnes and of the Transition Network. He has many years' experience in education, teaching permaculture and natural building, and set up the first two-year full-time permaculture course in the world, at Kinsale Further Education College in Ireland, as well as coordinating the first eco-village development in Ireland to be granted planning permission. He is author of The Transition Handbook: from oil dependence to local resilience and The Transition Companion: making your community more resilient in uncertain times, and co-author of Local Food: how to make it happen in your community (all published by Green Books / Transition Books)- also Transition in Action: Totnes and District 2030: an Energy Descent Plan (co-author), Woodlands for West Cork! and Energy Descent Pathways. The Transition Handbook has been published in seven other languages to date, and was voted the fifth most popular book taken on holiday by MPs during the summer of 2008. Rob publishes, which has been voted 'the fourth best green blog in the UK'. He is the winner of the 2008 Schumacher Award, is an Ashoka Fellow and a Fellow of the Post Carbon Institute, served as a Soil Association Trustee for three years, and was named by the Independent as one of the UK's top 100 environmentalists. He is the winner of the 2009 Observer Ethical Award in the Grassroots Campaigner category, and in December 2009 was voted the Energy Saving Trust / Guardian's 'Green Community Hero'. He lectures and writes widely on peak oil and Transition, and has recently completed a PhD on Transition and Resilience at Plymouth University. Central to The Transition Handbook and The Transition Companion is the concept of 'resilience', which refers to the ability of a community to withstand external shocks and stresses. Rob argues that just cutting carbon emissions is insufficient: we need to rebuild the ability of our communities to provide for their core needs, and doing so will create huge opportunities for local economic regeneration. His books are about hope and optimism, and their untapped potential for engaging people in repairing their communities, their towns and cities, and, ultimately, their planet. The Transition Companion expands on the ideas in the Handbook, combining practical advice on starting and maintaining a Transition initiative with inspiring stories about groups across the world who are putting these ideas into practice. Rob regularly features as a keynote speaker, and has participated at the following events: Community Land Trust Conference- WWF (talk to the various teams)- Sustainable Consumption and Production Conference- Dorset Schools Eco-Summit- Eco-Build Summit- Prince's Foundation Annual Conference at St James's Palace- Skype presentation to the Nova Scotia Planning Directors Association (NSPDA) Conference- Skype presentation for the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) conference. He lives in Devon with his wife and four children. He has particular passions for cob building and walnut trees, and is staggered by the rate at which the Transition concept has spread.
