A movement of communities
coming together to re-imagine
and rebuild our world.

News of coming together after Italian earthquakes and enough movement building in America Latina to stir an earthquake.Tanya asks for help as to whether to stand for election in Denmark and in Brussels a European gathering breathes new life into the Commons. Rob reflects on the gulf between the kind of poise and clarity at Standing Rock and what we see elsewhere in the world of politics, plus what did we learn from Punk and making beer from bread.Our ‘Essential Guide to Doing Transition’ is now available in Spanish and we review a wonderful new French film about Transition.
