Présentation de l'éditeur

In 2008, the best selling The Transition Handbook suggested a model for a community-led response to peak oil and climate change. Since then, the Transition idea has gone viral across the globe, from universities and London neighbourhoods to Italian villages and Brazilian favelas. In contrast to the ever-worsening stream of information about climate change, the economy and resource depletion, Transition focuses on solutions, on community-scale projects and on positive results. The Transition Companion picks up the story today, describing one of the most fascinating experiments now under way in the world. It shows how communities are working for a future where local enterprises are valued and nurtured; where lower energy use is seen as a benefit; and where cooperation, creativity and the building of resilience are the cornerstones of a new economy. The first part discusses where we are now in terms of resilience to the problems of rising oil prices, climate change and economic uncertainty. It presents a vision of how the future might look if we succeed in addressing these issues. The book then looks in detail at the process a community in transition goes through, drawing on the experience of those who have already embarked on this journey. These examples show how much can be achieved when people harness energy and imagination to create projects that will make their communities more resilient. The Transition Companion combines practical advice; the tools needed to start and maintain a Transition initiative; with numerous inspiring stories from local groups worldwide.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Une dernière version plus agréable 6 janvier 2012
Si vous etes "english speakers" et hesitez entre la version française et ce dernier chapitre anglais, je recommende ce livre...
Les deux livres sont complementaires et sont des sources d'information inestimables pour ceux qui souhaitent participer à une initiative de transition dans leur communauté mais ne savent pas par ou commencer: guide pas à pas, shemas explicatifs, outil simples à la portée de Mr tout le monde..
La version française est tres bien faite et meme tres bien personalisée au monde francophone, mais commence deja à dater un peu: il n'y avait pas de crise à l'epoque!!!...

Cette dernière version anglaise est plus agréable que les livres precedents (anglais et francais)...
Elle est etoffée de plus de photos, de nombreux exemples d'initiatives à travers le monde mais aussi de retours et reflexions sur des initiatives qui ont échoué.. Un livre qui montre que rendre sa communauté plus conviviale et resiliente, c'est possible, et plus de 1000 communautés l'ont deja fait!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 First exposure or follow up--The Transition Companion is recommended reading 13 décembre 2011

You can start or continue your journey with the Transition Movement with this book. For those who are new to the concept, the Companion effectively introduces you to the current flavor of the process. After a few years of completing initial transitions in a variety of cities and companies, the movement has a better understanding of what works.

The flexibility of the movement is both the challenge and charm of the book and process. Transition purposes to not tell individuals or communities what the right answer is for each process of change. Rather, the movement is specific about the objectives and methods. The objective is to create stable communities without dependency on oil harvest-levels represented by peak oil production.

Rather, the objective is an effective community that can support itself in a more local way so the need for extensive transport is needed. The movement is well-aware that not all products should be handled in smaller communities and bases. One of the most interesting tables in the book illustrates this fact. Some opponents of the movement characterize participants as being simple Luddites who don't understand the implications of modern society. With the updates presented in The Transition Companion the founder makes it clear these are not the goals of the movement.

Obviously, a single book cannot address everything a person or community needs to become self-supporting. The Companion can get you started or bring you up to date on Transition experiences around the globe. Transition is not about fear about modern failure or disaster. It is about preparing and adjusting: reasonable actions in our changing, unsettled world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How to Build a Resilient Community 17 novembre 2011

What The Whole Earth Catalog (WEC) did for its time, I believe The Transition Companion will do for today. The WEC was about the tools needed to build a new culture in the days oil was cheap and plentiful. The Transition Companion is about a new era when oil is expensive, the easy oil is nearly gone, human caused climate change is a global game changer and recovery from the Great Recession of 2008 is proving slow at best.

Like the WEC, The Transition Companion is a book of tools. These tools are for building a grassroots community program. In my years of work in this field I've never seen a better guide. The Transition Handbook (2008) was a great launch for the movement but the Companion is a quantum leap beyond it.

What is the measure of success? How about the growth of the Transition Towns (TT) movement? The TT movement is only five years old, starting from the founding of Transition Towns Totnes in the UK in 2006. Since then nearly 400 official Transition Initiates have been formed in 34 countries and 103 of them are in the US. More are starting up. This is what they call viral in the best sense.

Yes, incredible! Before I continue let's raise a glass and give three cheers to Rob Hopkins and another three cheers to the thousands of Transition Towners around the world. Hip, Hip.....!

The Transition Companion is 300 pages of superbly illustrated text. We need to give a hand to Chelsea Green for an excellent product, on "Paper from responsible sources." The book uses a form of Christopher Alexander's "pattern language." That means the book is made up of a lot of short parts that are very carefully crafted to unfold in the form of a "pattern," an encapsulation of community smarts presented in the form of something like a recipe. Patterns are things that work, not theories.

The intent of this book is admirable - it inspires the formation of special forward-looking communities. Because it is published in the UK, the case studies seem too specifically British but the recommendations are still useful to anyone considering alternatives to conventional village life.

The Transition Companion is a companion to the Transition Handbook. Mankind has been living unsustainably - using resources as if those resources were unlimited. Our economy is based on cheap oil (not just oil) and cheap oil is gone - subsequent costs more. Society must change, but Hopkins offers a scenario that improves quality of life with the changes.
