Rob Hopkins
Creating the Future We Want

With the news of climate-breakdown and biodiversity-loss worse by the day, has the time come for a Transition in the way we live? Permaculture designer Rob Hopkins founded the Transition Town network in Totnes in 2006. It’s now a global movement – including a thriving Cambridge branch. He comes to the Festival with his new book From What is to What if? to challenge us to unleash our collective imagination to create rapid change for the better. Through the stories of individuals and communities around the world who are ‘doing stuff’, Rob reveals new hope for a sustainable future.
