The Transition Handbook
Creating local sustainable communities beyond oil dependency

Most of us avoid thinking about what happens when oil runs out (or becomes prohibitively expensive), but 'The Transition Handbook' shows how the inevitable and profound changes ahead can have a positive outcome. These changes can lead to the rebirth of local communities that will grow more of their own food, generate their own power, and build their own houses using local materials. They can also encourage the development of local currencies to keep money in the local area.

Based on success stories of communities in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, the book explains how we can ‘transition’ from fossil-fuel based communities to ones that are more self-reliant and that encourage local food, local economies and local water harvesting and energy generation.

The Transition movement began in the UK, where there are now more than 40 Transition Towns. This edition contains a special supplement outlining Transition communities in Australia and New Zealand, where there are now over 20 Transition initiatives.

'The Transition Handbook' is a groundbreaking book which shows how we can move from feeling anxious and fearful in the face of ‘peak oil’ to developing a positive vision and taking practical action to create a more self-reliant existence. We live in an oil-dependent world and have acted as if there was an infinite supply.

175 x 247 mm, 278 pages, paperback.
