Sustainability Book Club March

The Transition Companion: Making Your Community More Resilient in Uncertain Times

by Rob Hopkins

The Transition idea has gone viral across the globe, from Italian villages and Brazilian favelas to universities and London neighborhoods. In contrast to the ever-worsening stream of information about climate change, the economy, and resource depletion, Transition focuses on solutions, on community-scale responses, on meeting new people, and on having fun. The Transition Companion 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.

The goal of the Sustainability Book Club is to share books and discussions that help us understand the world and our place in it in a different way. This can change the way we experience the world and the way we act in our day-to-day lives, opening new possibilities for environmental sustainability, social justice and peace.

Feel free to join us and drop in - even if you have not read the book. It is the issues and themes that spark the discussion. Everyone is welcome to join in for one session or all of them. It is your opinion on the issues that builds an interesting discussion.

Sponsored by: Pages Bookstore, Sustainable Calgary, The Arusha Centre, EcoLiving Events, Green Calgary, Thrive, and now REAP Calgary and the Sierra Club Chinook Group.
