Biography

Rob Hopkins is a British permaculture teacher and the initiator of the International Transition Towns movement since 2005.

He began teaching permaculture at Kinsale Further Education College in Ireland in 2001 and co-founded Transition Town Totnes in 2005 with Naresh Giangrande, the first official transition town in Totnes.

In 2007, with Peter Lipman and Ben Brangwyn, he co-founded the Transition Network, a charity designed to support the many transition initiatives emerging around the world, inspired by the processes ongoing in Kinsale and Totnes.

Rob Hopkins also blogs about transition initiatives, particularly those in Totnes, which he started in 2006.

Today, "Cities in Transition" has hundreds of initiatives in twenty countries and engages all stakeholders. Their objective is to collectively build an alternative way of life to petroleum energy, reduce energy consumption while locally relocating the economy through the exchange of goods and services.
