"The Transition Companion"

The founder of the Transition Town initiative tells inspiring tales of communities working for a future where local economies are valued and nurtured; where lower energy use is seen as a benefit; and where enterprise, creativity and the building of resilience have become cornerstones of a new economy. His new book, Transition Companion, combines these remarkable stories with practical advice on the tools needed to start and maintain a Transition initiative. We’ll also be showing the Hay Transition Town short film, "Nigel in Transition".Full programme and booking details available here:  http://www.hayfestival.com/winterweekend/index.aspx?skinid=11
