Scaling up Transition - Accelerate Aotearoa anyone?

I innocently pressed play on this video on Tuesday night and did not expect what followed. This 30 minute video is in Rob's words "his favourite talk" from the recent trip he did to the US, after breaking his vow not to travel by plane.

This is by far the most impactful, energising, inspiring video I've seen in some time. It's meaningful, thoughtful, humorous, delightful and real.

Here's the link to the thoughtful article which summarises the ideas.

Rob is suggesting five factors to help the Transition movement scale up in a way that's proportionate to the challenges of our time. They are:


  1. Create a learning network
  2. Support and resource core groups
  3. Bring forward investment for Transition enterprises
  4. Become better storytellers
  5. Build an evidence base
He explains these beautifully in his article.

David Holmgren talks Transition and Strategy

If you have not come across Holmgren's ideas around Future Scenarios then this interview is well worth a look.
