Rob Hopkins: The Power of Community

Rob Hopkins has a profound understanding of the power of communities to create change. As the founder of the Transition Network  he has experienced first hand what it means when – through creativity and compassion – groups of people come together in a network of support to work at bettering their communities.

At the Triodos Bank UK Annual Meeting in April, Rob explored the thinking behind the Transition Network and how we can all become engaged in the values that went into building it. By embracing complexity and diversity, Rob says, we construct a more robust and rewarding community that works for everyone and is naturally inclined towards sustainability.
