Why we need to reclaim the Impossible, and become better Time Travellers
:: activism :: imagination ::
In this presentation Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition movement, will explore the concept of Imagination Activism, and why he believes the Time Machine that he, and others, have built in a cellar deep beneath Totnes Castle, could turn out to be one of the most important developments in the expansion of the permaculture concept.
He will share some of his remarkable Field Recordings from the Future, sounds harvested from recent trips to the 2030 that could still result from our doing everything we possibly could between now and then. And he might even invite you to join him in his Time Machine for a bit of time travelling, just so long as he can get the Disbelief Suspenders repaired in time.
Rob Hopkins is the co-founder of Transition Network and of Transition Town Totnes, and author of several books including ‘The Transition Handbook‘ and most recently, ‘From What Is to What If: unleashing the power of imagination to create the future we want’.
He is an Ashoka Fellow, has spoken at TED Global and at several TEDx events, and appeared in the French film phenomenon ‘Demain‘. He holds a PhD from the University of Plymouth, and is a Director of Totnes Community Development Society and of New Lion Brewery. He also hosts the podcast ‘From What If to What Next‘. In November 2022 he was made an Honorary Citizen of Liège in Belgium by the Mayor of the city. His website is robhopkins.net.
