I usually participate in the "Change the World Wednesday" challenges by Reduce Footprints only on twitter but as the challenge this week is to share a Tedx talk by Rob Hopkins, what better way to share it than here?
Rob talks about a transition project in his home town, a project on how to get the community involved. I wish to be part of a project like that one day! The main ideas is to save energy and our environmental footprint by supporting the local business and at the same time create a better community feeling, which is what the people involved valued higher than anything else.
Some of the ideas he is talking about touches a little bit the same topics as the ideas under the term Collaborative Consumption. He talks about sharing gardens for example, just yesterday I found this webpage offering activities and services you can share, and they have a different section for sharing your garden! Let's see if these sort of ideas grow bigger and bigger!
