Présentation de l'éditeur

Something is stirring. People around the world are deciding that the wellbeing of their local community and its economy lies with them. They're people like you. They're rolling up their sleeves, getting together with friends and neighbours and doing something about it. Whether they start small or big, they find that just doing stuff can transform their neighbourhoods and their lives. This book is packed with inspiring real-life examples, and the voices of people who have created innovative local businesses and invested in all manner of new enterprises. This is the seed of a new economy "€“ the answer to our desperate search for a new way forward. At its heart is people deciding that change starts with them. Communities worldwide are already modelling a more local economy rooted in place, in wellbeing, in entrepreneurship and in creativity. And it works. Reviving the place you live in starts with a small group of people making the decision to do something. One of that group could be you.

Lorsque j'ai lu "The power of just doing stuff", j'ai senti monter en moi l'enthousiasme et l'inspiration, l'envie de passer à l'action de façon pratique et en commençant par ce qui a du sens pour moi...
Mais de quoi s'agit-il ??
Ce livre aide les personnes qui sont inquiètes (ou plus) de la situation actuelles et qui, parfois peuvent se sentir écrasées par les défis de notre temps : changements climatiques, fin de l'énergie bon marché, passage à une économie post croissance, crises sociales...

On y découvre des principes de base pour commencer à construire des solutions souvent simples au départ et ensuite progressivement plus ambitieuses et excitantes... Ces solutions sont le plus souvent locales et sont à la portée de citoyens ordinaires, comme vous et moi !! De nombreux exemples collectés à travers le monde sont là pour nous inspirer et nous montrer ce qui est possible...

Bonne lecture !!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Local action CAN change the world 17 août 2013
Par C. Mills - Publié sur Amazon.com
Rob Hopkins just keeps on getting better. If one's criteria for the proverbial "good read" are concise, entertaining, packed with information, and an easy read besides, then The Power of Just Doing Stuff fills the bill admirably.

In his first book, The Transition Handbook (now pretty much the "bible" of the global Transition Movement) Hopkins laid out the compelling case for the need to transition our communities to a more resilient, sustainable and lower-carbon model to meet the challenges of oil depletion, climate change and economic instability. He presented a clear blueprint for building community resilience through re-localization, relearning important skills, and building strong community ties. Its sequel, The Transition Companion, expanded on those themes, and now, with The Power of Just Doing Stuff, Hopkins makes these sometimes daunting goals seem achievable, by showing how communities around the world are already making it happen. How? Well, by `just doing stuff'. He shows how Transition Towns everywhere are engaging, encouraging and empowering their citizens at all levels, and, as Hopkins has said in his earlier books, "unleashing the collective genius of the community."

Like the Transition movement itself, this book is positive and solution-oriented. It's a fascinating read, and an inspiring one, too. If you are looking for a way to arouse and engage your community toward positive change, you likely can't do better than this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Let's get to work 27 juillet 2013
Par Mark J. - Publié sur Amazon.com
One of the things that drew me to the Transition movement was the idea that people want to not just talk about the changes that are needed but really desire to get their hands dirty and do things (the other is the innate humility of a movement with a "cheerful disclaimer" warning that they don't have all the answers). Getting out and doing something indeed may be the best antidote to a sense of powerlessness in the face of environmental and economic challenges. Rob Hopkins' other books, The Transition Handbook and The Transition Companion, have provided guides for how to make Transition happen in your community. This book focuses more on how to get going: how to figure out what to do, how to bring others along, and how to make it happen. I think that the case studies are the best part of the book, as they provide both ideas on what to do as well as inspiration to just get going. This is a quick and engaging read, one that you will return to frequently as you progress your projects.

A little light on content....sorta disjointed in organization. Similar content is free on the Transition websites. Looking for more "meat."

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice ... but could have been so much more 17 novembre 2013
Par Andrew Kuligowski - Publié sur Amazon.com
I like the concept ... the subtitle says it all: "How local action can change the world".

I had hoped for some concrete ideas as to how I and my folks could make a difference. There are a few in here. But so much of the book is turned over to success stories of the Transitions movement (of which author Rob Hopkins is the founder), that unless you either want to copy other groups OR have sufficient imagination to use as a springboard for your own circumstances, the book is lacking.

The author's point is that things can be changed by doing them on the local level. I understand his point that individuals acting alone as individuals can make a slight difference, but (my words) ironically, not enough to make a real difference. Still, not everyone has organizational skills; not everyone is blessed with a dynamic leader to inspire them. BUT everyone CAN do SOMETHING!

Perhaps I am being unfair. The book is easy to read and it contains some things that can certainly inspire. I had simply expected more, and did not get it.

RATING: 3 stars
DISCLOSURE: I was given a free copy of this book by Shelf Awareness newsletter; a review was hoped for but neither formally requested nor promised.

Have you noticed you've got a womanly aptitude for achieving but also facilitating others to do what needs to be done to keep a household and its members working well? I find that when I get on and use this ability with my family we can transition easily from difficulties into things running smoothly, creativity blossoming and all of us being more capable of maintaining love as the underpinning dynamic of our relationships. In short, we are happier.

‘The Power of Just Doing Stuff’ by Bob Hopkins reminded me that Allah I has designed me - with my womanly and my personal aptitudes - to serve beyond my family and in my local community and the interconnected world at large. In order to appreciate the enormity of today’s global climate problems, we have to understand something about the world economy.

In his opening chapter, ‘Why we need to do something’, Hopkins outlines current climate problems and trends in oil extraction and their subsequent effects at the local level. He demonstrates the inappropriateness of actions, such as using nuclear power, centralising services like hospitals and schools and using out-of-town shopping centres, as responses to these problems.

Alhamdulillah, Hopkins provides many examples of alternative responses that people are already making in their communities, from organising skill-shares, creating food co-ops and solar energy companies, to printing local currencies as a means of keeping money circulating locally. Hopkins grants his readers confidence in the potential of small achievements and warmly invites us to become active in the Transition Movement – to be part of joining up the various good initiatives in our community as a movement towards making a new economy that truly addresses our needs.

Reading the rest of 'The Power of Just Doing Stuff', we become acutely aware that our communities have been fragmented by today’s 'normal’ economic activity and we learn about alternative real solutions to climate change which build community resilience. We discover how our local community and the world could become happier. As Muslims, we're duty-bound to undertake the responsibility of vicegerents of the earth:
“Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: ‘I will create a vicegerent on earth.’" (Al-Baqarah:30)

How should caring stewards of the earth respond to climate problems? In the Transition Movement, aspiring vicegerents can find the company of others who care to find out and to do what’s best for our local ecology and then work with each other to respond to climate problems, insha Allah.

Facilitators of meetings play a small role in terms of the time they dedicate to the Transition Movement yet they are invaluable for groups to work amicably together, to be able to make decisions and get on with implementing them. As I said, I think women have a special aptitude for facilitation. Hopkins says, “Transition is one manifestation of the idea that local action can change the world ... There are people near you who can be optimistic and practical too.” Transition Movement responses to climate problems begin with our own, our neighbours’ and our community’s needs. For the love of Allah I, as His vicegerents, don’t you think we Muslim women need to join this movement?
