FROM ‘WHAT IS’ TO ‘WHAT IF’:
A THREE-DAY IMMERSION IN THE RADICAL IMAGINATION
WITH ROB HOPKINS
👣Organised by the Schumacher Sprouts At Froidefontaine Farm
If climate change is anything, it is a historic failure of the imagination. Rob Hopkins’ new book asks the question ‘are we experiencing a catastrophic failure of imagination at the very time in history when we need to be at our most imaginative?’
This 3-day course will explore why, as activists and changemakers, we need to put the imagination central to our work. Alongside theory, this immersion will include play, imaginative exercises and improvisation (all of which you will be able to incorporate into your own work). We’ll learn new ways to look at nature, we’ll explore the power of ‘yes, and’. Most of all, we’ll have a lot of fun.
Rob Hopkins is a cofounder of Transition Town Totnes and Transition Network, and the author of The Power of Just Doing Stuff, The Transition Handbook, and The Transition Companion. In 2012, he was voted one of the Independent’s top 100 environmentalists and was on Nesta and the Observer’s list of Britain’s 50 New Radicals. Hopkins has also appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Four Thought and A Good Read, in the French film phenomenon Demain and its sequel Après Demain, and has spoken at TEDGlobal and three TEDx events.
An Ashoka Fellow, Hopkins also holds a doctorate degree from the University of Plymouth and has received two honorary doctorates from the University of the West of England and the University of Namur. He is a keen gardener, a founder of New Lion Brewery in Totnes, and a director of Totnes Community Development Society, the group behind Atmos Totnes, an ambitious, community-led development project.
