9780857841179: The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World

Packed with real-life examples and the voices of people who have created innovative local businesses and invested in all manner of new enterprises, this call for local action argues that the seed of a new economy—and the answer to the desperate search for a new way forward in an increasingly economically insecure and ecologically unstable world—is an understanding by individuals that change starts with them. The aim of the Transition movement is to galvanize people into taking action, whether on a large or a small scale, with the goal of creating communities that model a local economy rooted in place, in well-being, in entrepreneurship, and in creativity. While the book is primarily focused on food production and sustainable energy, the practical applications it offers also address how to rebuild a local community in the face of austerity due to a natural disaster or economic collapse. Eschewing political arguments of any kind, this discussion will appeal to readers of all persuasions who are eager to play a role in creating a more stable and healthier world one community at a time.

About the Author:

Rob Hopkins is the cofounder of Transition Town Totnes and of the Transition Network. He set up the first two-year, full-time permaculture course in the world at Kinsale Further Education College in Ireland, as well as the first ecovillage development in Ireland to be granted planning permission. He is the author of The Transition Handbook: From Oil Dependence to Local Resilience and The Transition Companion: Making Your Community More Resilient in Uncertain Times and the coauthor of Local Food: How to Make It Happen in Your Community. 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.

Review:

“We can talk forever, but actually learning to live well within planetary boundaries is about doing things differently here and now. Rob Hopkins is a master at doing stuff. He makes the necessary look desirable and possible. Hopkins has understood that paths are made by walking and that what matters is taking steps. Dealing with global challenges will need important rules set at high levels, but we will only survive and thrive if we become enchanted by positive change locally, where we experience the world. This book is that spell to help rapid transition happen.”  —Andrew Simms, author, Cancel the Apocalypse

“Rob Hopkins’s book is a truly unique piece of work that anyone who cares about our future in this densely populated and threatened world should read. It offers original thought and clear analysis. It also combines realism and hope.”  —Jonathan Dimbleby, writer and broadcaster

“There’s a buzz around this book, and its message, that gives great grounds for optimism on topics that are often rather doom-laden. Its true power lies in the fact that its many smart ideas are already underway. The idea that local food can be better for communities, for local economies, for our well-being, and for the planet is now widely accepted. The Power of Just Doing Stuff captures the potential of applying that thinking beyond food, to how we think about energy generation, development, investment, [and] job creation and to the shift to an economy appropriate to the 21st century.”  —Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, celebrity chef, television personality, journalist, food writer, and “real food” campaigner

“A wonderful combination of civic local engagement and a worldwide network. In many towns throughout the world people get together, finding community, enthusiastic about the idea of together envisioning a future model for their town that will make it worth living in.”  —Horst Köhler, former German president and former president of the IMF, on The Transition Handbook
