Bounce Forward – Transition Towns Network -Webinar Feedback


The first was the one that clashed with our own TT meeting. Nevertheless worth watching as it puts a lot in context.

Led by Rob Hopkins, who started the Transition movement

“What is the context for the next 5 years of transition?”

Features Professor Kevin Anderson of the Tyndall centre – starts with the science and sets everything in context. Really worth a look if energy is your area of interest.

Next was Nick Anim from TT Brixton, talking about diversity, BLM

Lastly, Eva Schonfeld – Transition Scotland Hub. She was talking of emotional and collective resilience. Conclusion, in brief – most of our current leadership in government, do not have it!

“2 Transition Telford members, attended a series of webinars exploring the future of Transition and sharing ideas and actions that have come from lockdown.  They were all brilliant and I urge you to have a listen.

They are all available on Youtube.  While we could not attend all or events they have been shared online, and will hopefully be shared further by other groups.

Speakers are Kevin Anderson – Prof of Energy and Climate Change.  Why the govts are failing catatrophically
Nick Anim – TT Brixton on diversity and inclusivity
Eva Schonveld from the Transition Scotland hub.”
