Transition Founder Rob Hopkins: Local Action Can Change The World

Please join us for an extremely exciting event on the evening of Friday October 4th in Portland, Maine.  Rob Hopkins, one of the co-founders and originators of the Transition Town and Transition Initiative movement will be coming to Portland Maine.  Rob is based in the UK and his work on developing the Transition concept from 2006 to now arose out of his permaculture work.  In fact, our local Permaculture Group here in Portland arose out of a conference organized by Rob and his permaculture students in the summer of 2005!
