Rob Hopkins

Global Imagination, Local Action

Drawing by Tem & Badj

The instigator of “The Transition Towns” movement, Rob Hopkins considers that the transition must become a permanent way of life and thought in order to get us through the current crisis. In particular, he proposes declaring a “climate emergency” and to build, teach, and produce only from this new perspective. The purpose is to spur us into action and to reevaluate the whole globalized capitalist system of production and consumption. By leveraging networked local and citizen actions that propose new universally replicable models based on the commons and cooperation, he intends to spark a global movement, in a spirit of degrowth.
